Letter from the editors: the end of an era

Annie Myers, Ally Nguyen, Anika Roy, JagWire editor-in-chief

Hello, hello, Mill Valley, and welcome back to the very last issue of the 2018-19 school year and our very last issue as editor-in-chiefs. It’s hard to believe this production cycle is already over (and every production cycle at that), but we would argue we went out on the best one yet.

In late April, the three of us traveled alongside 24 other members of the journalism department to Anaheim, California for the biannual National Scholastic Press Association Conference where we attended sessions taught by professionals across the nation, spent time in Disneyland, Los Angeles and a surprise day stuck in Houston, Texas (thanks, Mother Nature). Despite our sleep deprivation and many make-up assignments, we’re so grateful to have shared such a fun experience with one another.

The last month has also brought about celebration. When in Anaheim, the JagWire, as well MVTV and last year’s yearbook, received an NSPA Best of Show award, placing our content among the ten most elite in the country. We then were ecstatic to receive an All-Kansas recognition for our website, MV News, last week, as this is the highest award possible for a publication to receive in the state. Lastly, on Saturday, May 4, 22 journalism members partook in the state journalism competition held at the University of Kansas, contributing to an overall second place sweepstakes finish (by only one point, we may add).

We thank Habiger, as well as all of you, for being so supportive of our work over the past three years. Although we know we’ve lived out our time here on staff, we’ve grown as individuals and as best friends in this room, so letting C-101 go isn’t easy. We’re not leaving behind incapable hands, however. To our younger staff members preparing to lead the way next year, we hope you’ve learned as much from us as we have from you — we couldn’t be more proud.

Thank you for everything Mill Valley,

Annie, Ally, and Anika
