Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

Adi Levin, Editor-in-Chief

Dear staff,

     I was rummaging through some boxes at a garage sale when I stumbled across a small wooden sign which read, “Note to the crew: if everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.” Naturally, I was reminded of the pub room. I know that working on the paper isn’t always smooth sailing, but you’ve all managed to find a way to navigate the tempestuous sea of high school journalism with great skill. 

     Ms. Zarkh and Ms. Cotter, thank you both for putting up with us and for keeping the chaos of bednight to a minimum. We couldn’t have asked for a more dynamic, enthusiastic pair of advisors, and we are infinitely grateful for your wisdom and guidance. 

     To Managing and CD: I don’t know what I would have done without my right-hand women. Thank you for staying behind on the latest of bednights and coming in on the earliest of Saturdays, my InDesign goddesses. 

     To Copy: you’re a brilliant team, and together, you managed to handle “every issue, every issue” with the utmost grace and composure. The paper wouldn’t be what it is without you!

     To News: You did a fantastic job of covering all things newsworthy (and not quite newsworthy) this year! I’ve never seen such a motivated, inquisitive team of news editors. 

     To Opinions: by some miracle, you always managed to get everything done by the end of bednight. The ability to work quickly to meet deadlines is the hallmark of any good journalist, and you’ve certainly mastered that skill. 

     To Features: you’ve done a wonderful job of expanding the section with new columns, mixing up your layouts, and finding interesting stories with local angles. 

     To A&E, our only all-senior section: Your creative headlines and original monthly playlists will be tough acts to follow. 

     To Sports, the honorary disc jockeys of The Schreiber Times: This year, you found plenty of fresh takes on sports stories (read: Vikings Rising). Thanks for always picking the best tunes to keep us going on bednight! 

     Graphics: You constantly amaze the rest of staff with your incredible covers. Your work will forever be “etched in stone!” That one never gets old. 

     Photos: thank you for not actually abandoning newspaper, even though you’ve been dropping hints about giving your two weeks’ notice since September!

     Business: thank you for always keeping our spirits high and for defining your own role on staff this year. 

     Finally, to the new staff: although I haven’t gotten the chance to get to know you, you seem exceptionally innovative and driven, and I hope you enjoy your time as Schreiber Times editors as much as I did. 

     It has been an absolute privilege to be your Editor-in-Chief, and I can’t wait to see what you’re up to next year. 

Best of luck,
