It’s time to turn the page on another year of The Penmen Press. In recent years, we’ve been part of immeasurable growth, this year has been no different, and in this time of transition the two of us are equal parts humbled and excited to lead this amazing group.
The dynamic duo of Megan Palmer and Rebecca LeBoeuf are a hard act to follow. Their dedication to press at times could be perceived as unhealthy, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t going to miss the frantic 2 a.m. text messages from Megan. Even while Rebecca went abroad and took a hiatus from being Editor-in-Chief, she still acted as Penmen Abroad Editor. Press is too deep in her blood to stop, and we know we’ll see this budding journalist in the big leagues someday. And feel free to message us from Chicago if you can’t sleep, Megan.
It’s clear that all their hard work was done because they love what they do. Their passion for the Penmen Press and the hard work of everyone who chooses to spend their Wednesday afternoons with us shines through these pages.
Our hearts are heavy with familial pride as we say farewell to these two, and the rest of our departing members, Mike Banarhall, Travis Burke, Thomas Cahalan, Gabe Carrio, Maria Celli, Megan Danis, Kevin Guimond, Tyler Leighton, Wyndee Man, Jess Puchacz, Desmond Robinson, Matthew Rubenstein, Eddie Sam, Addison Thyng, and David Williams. Thank you all for the mark you’ve left on this paper. And don’t ever hesitate to visit.
To our returning members, we trust you’ll keep your appetites for improving your craft when we meet again come September. You have all grown so much in this short year, and we can’t thank you enough for the effort and passion you bring to every Press meeting. It is because of your voice that we have been so successful. The Penmen Press is a family first, and a newspaper second.
To our readers, we aim to continue pushing forward on this path of innovation, growth and constant improvement of the way we tell SNHU’s story. It’s going to be hard to top the amazing year we just had, but the Penmen Press is always up for a challenge. Thank you for your loyalty and support. Thank you for reading.
From your new Editors-In-Chief, Nick Klotz and Nikki Fain, here’s looking forward to another great year.
