With this issue, The Uniter is officially 73 years old. None of us here now were there when it started, but we do have the archives to remind us of our humble roots. And this will be the very first paper for a few of us!
This year, we’re welcoming some fresh faces to our team, and some folks you may be familiar with are moving into new positions.
Thomas Pashko, who was the features reporter last year, is our new arts and culture editor. Davis Plett is joining us as arts and culture reporter, and Sarah Jo Kirsch is our new features reporter. In the city section, Alexandra Neufeldt joins The Uniter as city reporter, and Ryan Haughey is our campus reporter.
If you’re thinking of writing for The Uniter, by all means, go for it! Tamika Reid is our new volunteer co-ordinator, and you can find her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our schedule for new volunteer orientations will also be posted at uniter.ca/volunteer.
I’d also like to welcome Talia Steele, our creative director, who does the behind-the-scenes work of making this paper look great.
In the next few weeks, you’ll also meet our newest columnist, Christina Hajjar.
Of course, I’m also grateful for all of our staff who are returning from last year - their talents and expertise create an excellent foundation as we build this year’s new team. So far, we’re off to a wonderful start, and I’m excited to see what year 73 will bring.
