Letter From The Editor
Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Too often do we not fully appreciate what it means to be thankful for what we do or do not have. I’d like to take a moment to recognize some of the things I am most grateful for.
To begin, I’d like to thank my staff. All their hard work makes it possible for me to keep my head straight managing this newspaper. I’m not only thankful for their dedication and passion for the Mace & Crown, but for their genuine friendship and understanding when things get hectic for me.
I would also like to thank my advisors Vamsi Manne and Dr. Joyce Hoffman. Mr. Manne has offered me a place to be candid about my experience with running this publication, and Dr. Hoffmann has only enabled me to be where I am now.
Their enthusiasm for the success of their students is an example of what excellence Old Dominion University has to offer.
I would also like to thank Nicole Kiger, the director of Leadership and Student Involvement, for likewise being an affable and attentive advisor for myself and other student leaders.
And, of course, I would like to thank you, the reader, for continuing to support our organization and giving the Mace & Crown an audience. Each paper pulled from the stands is a smile on our face.
To show our appreciation and gratitude, I would like to invite you to our office for lunch Thursday, Nov. 21, from noon to 2 p.m. I hope this to be an opportunity to engage with our readership and get feedback on what students want from our publication.
Once again, I am very grateful for the above mentioned and all they do to keep my engines going. I hope you take some time to reflect on all the things you are grateful for this holiday season.
