Here we go again

The new school year is a time of change for many students. It’s a time of change for The Uniter, as well. As we enter our 74th publishing year, the official newspaper of the University of Winnipeg is welcoming many new folks and saying goodbye to some old ones.

I should probably introduce myself. I’m Thomas Pashko, the new managing editor, but not a new face at The Uniter. I’ve spent the last five years and change trying my hand at the newspaper game in various staff positions.

But this time, I’ve got some pretty big shoes to fill. Our outgoing managing editor, Anastasia Chipelski, spent the past four-and-a-half years shaping The Uniter to better fulfill our mandate to tell the stories, both on campus and in Winnipeg, that aren’t being told elsewhere. She’s been an incredible mentor to Uniter staff, myself included, and the good work she did here will be reverberating for years to come.

We’ve got plenty of new staff on board this year, including features editor Katherine Cao, features reporter Amol Samra, arts and culture reporters Hannah Foulger and Naaman Sturrup, city editor Lisa Mizan, campus reporter Callum Goulet-Kilgour and comments editor Haley Pauls. Look forward to more work from them in the coming year.
