This is the last issue of the Bulletin for the spring semester and my last as Editor-in-Chief. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to serve in this role throughout my senior year.
During my time as an editor, I learned more about myself and more about my craft than I would have sitting on the sidelines. I started on the newspaper as a staff reporter before becoming the News Editor and at that point, the news section consisted of two writers and we had about 10 people on the staff. When I became Editor-in-Chief in the fall semester the paper had doubled and then grew again in the spring semester and we have seen an impressive increase in our web traffic.
I want to thank you for your support of the Bulletin and mostly I want to thank my staff reporters, the editors, and my adviser for their hard work, support, and understanding.
The coronavirus threw our world upside down these past few weeks and forced the Toro community to navigate a new set of norms and challenges.
Toros should all be proud of the work you have accomplished despite the virus and for those Toros that are about to leave Dominguez, this is our time.
This was one challenge that we excelled at and came out stronger on the other side. The Bulletin has become more than a class, it is a team and a family. I used to love walking into the newsroom and hearing the chatter and the buzz of excitement. Working on the Bulletin is not the easiest, there were a lot of nights that myself and the other editors were in the newsroom until 11 p.m. trying to put the paper out. There were a lot of tears, a lot of frustration, yet a lot of pride and joy in seeing our hard work in a tangible newspaper. And as I hang up my press pass and take on the world post-grad, I will always look back on the work that I put into the newspaper and feel a sense of pride in what we accomplished as a team and what I accomplished as an individual. Thank you again for your support, stay safe, and stay healthy.
