Sometimes, for all the literal blood, sweat and tears, I wondered if it was worth it.
The answer was always “yes.”
Award or no, my experience working at The Eagle, including more than a year as editor-in-chief, has been the defining moment of my education, even though I wasn’t even a J-school major.
I could not be more proud of our team of reporters, editors, photographers, designers, business staff, you name it. It belongs to each and every one of them.
