Letter From The Editor

To the readers of The Point,

I wanted to thank you all for your continued support throughout the year. I’ve learned so much in these past few months as editor in chief of The Point, and I wanted you all to know that it has been a pleasure writing for you all.

Unfortunately, starting next semester I will no longer be the editor of The Point. Although I will be contributing to the publication and helping out the staff as much as I am able to, my role will serve in a different capacity than I do now.

I began writing for the student newspaper the spring semester of my freshman year, and now that I am at the end of my sophomore year I look back and realize just how much I have grown as a writer, reporter, and a human being. Although the work I did for the newspaper was sometimes challenging, it is the duty of the student newspaper to become the voice of its student body.

The Point has changed a lot in very small ways over these past few months, but there is still much room for improvement, and I am confident that new teams of staff writers for the publication will be able to bring about the greatest version of The Point.

I’d like to acknowledge and thank the very hard work that the Spring 2023 staff has put in this semester. I’d also like to thank Dr. Wafa Unus for her great counsel and amazing guidance to all of the staff writers, including myself. The Point couldn’t be what it is today without any of you.

Truly, I couldn’t have done it without you.

Have a great summer, Fitchburg, and thank you all!

Nicholas Valdez, Editor in Chief of The Point
