My Reign Has Come to an End
Farewell From the Editor

Well my time here is done.
As I reflect on my past two years at Lyndon State College, especially my last year as editor of the Critic, there are a few things that stand out.
We have printed stories running the gamut from a presidential search to an alleged sexual assault.
I want to thank my staff for all the hard work they have put in to the paper. There have been many nights when we have stayed past 2 a.m. putting the Critic together and the paper would not be possible without them.
I came into this year as the only returning member of the Critic. I had no idea if I would have a staff to work with, let alone the amazing people that did step up and make this paper what it is.
The person I would like to thank the most is the Critic adviser Dan Williams. Without his attention to detail and shredding of the Critic every Friday this paper would be an unorganized, error filled mess. I wish him the best of luck in China next year and I know he will make a difference.
We have managed to upset some people along the way, but that’s news. It is not always happy and positive. I am proud of the determination and professionalism that my staff has shown in covering the more upsetting topics.
I hand the reigns off to Samantha VanSchoick, who already has a head start on a staff for next year. I know the Critic will only get better as there are some young, promising writers at LSC.
