With our penultimate Cowl underway, it is time for us to start our long list of goodbyes. Fortunately, we will have more time to prepare these for our Swan Songs in next week’s Commencement issue, but for now, we’d like to begin by saying “Thank You” to our readers for supporting our work each week.
The experience of being Editors-in-Chief has been rewarding to say the least. There is something very special in coming together each week to participate in this tradition, and to lead The Cowl, as so many have before us, has been an incredible honor.
Of course, we would not have come this far without our staff standing with us each week; they have made our work as editors all the more enjoyable. From our standup comedians at the copy editors’ table to our late night horoscope readings in The Cowl office, the people behind the publication have inspired us all year.
Two weeks ago we had the other honor of announcing our new Editors-in-Chief to the rest of our staff: Marla Gagne ’18 and Paige Calabrese ’18.This moment was as exciting for us as it was for them. We both know that The Cowl will be in good hands next year, and that they will continue to be dedicated leaders for our publication.
There will never be enough words to describe quite exactly what this experience has meant for us, so we leave you on this note: our goodbye to our work on The Cowl is not an end—as hard as it might be for us to go—because as cliché as it might sound, it is another beginning as our next Editors-in-Chief build upon The Cowl’s legacy.
Giving up the gavel,
Katie & Jackie
