By Shelley Termuende, Editor-In-Chief
After a lot of thought and reflection, I have decided to resign as Editor-In-Chief/Publisher of Over The Edge newspaper. I have made the choice to graduate on time in 2015 and therefore can no longer fit in the long hours and busy schedule running a business and a non-profit organization require. This means that Over The Edge newspaper will soon be seeking applications for a new Editor-In-Chief/Publisher who will successfully guide Over The Edge throughout the next year(s).
It is without question that my time at Over The Edge has been challenging, however these challenges have led to remarkable improvements which have helped our paper to rival those seen on a national level of campus press. Regardless of our success, we still have a long way to go. I am certain the next editorial team at Over The Edge will show the same commitment seen from the individuals I have had the pleasure of learning and working with over these last two years.
At this year’s AGM I will be submitting my request to sit on the Board of Directors in order to continue to aid in the success of this little publication I have come to hold so close to my heart. It is my hope to be a mentor to my successor and next year’s editorial team for the remainder of my time at the University of Northern British Columbia.
I ask the students and all members of the UNBC community submit their requests to sit on the Over The Edge Board of Directors. We need all the voices we can get to ensure the paper is providing you with the services you want and need.
