2 • BENNETT BANNER • MAY 8, 1998 OPINION • OPINION • OPINION • OPINION • OPINION Paquita Herring Herring bids farewell Serving as the editor of the Bennett Banner for the past two years has certainly been a learning experience. I enthusiastically accepted the challenge when I was appointed editor as a sophomore. Now it is with lots of thought that I have decided not to return to the Bennett Banner next year. There are several reasons fw my decision, but most importantly, I would like for someone else to gain the experience of running a newspaper. Someone else will now be able to accept the many criticisms and wait forever to hear the compliments they should receive. The position as editor has taught me how to work the with difficult personalities one may encounter once they reach the work force. I’ve also learned the whole wcffld is on a deadline and the work force is full of politics. We as students don’t try hard enough to stay abreast of all that goes on in the news. Instead we spend way too much time concentrating on things that aren’t that important and that are not newsworthy. I hope in the future we will seek to stay abreast of current events. Many thanks to the administration, faculty, staff and students who have always given me a pat on the back or a kind word. To the graduates, lots of love and success. To the new Banner editor I bequeath my patience. To everyone else, in the words of Jerry Springer ‘Take care of yourself and each other.” The opinion expressed in this column is that of the author and does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Bennett Banner staff.
