Saying goodbye to outgoing staff

The publishing cycle for The Lawrentian is coming to a close. As this is our last publication this term, we wanted to take a moment to say goodbye to some outgoing staff and let them share a little about their time working with the paper. We will be back second week of Spring Term with some new staff coming on board and we hope you will stick around!

Dannielle Konz

Outgoing Editor-in-Chief

If anyone were to ask me what the most impactful part of my college experience was, I would answer The Lawrentian. I have worked for the paper since my freshman year, but never once had I thought that I would be in the position I am currently. However, I am so thankful for this experience, the opportunity to work with so many groups and individuals and for the staff who have made this job so much more than just a job. I will miss the paper, but I am so excited to see where it is headed and under the new leadership, I know that great things are coming. 

McKinley Breen

Outgoing Managing Editor

I joined The Lawrentian my sophomore year as a news writer, almost on a whim. And now as a senior I am leaving it as a managing editor. A job I never even knew existed for one, and one that I am thankful to have had. In my three years here I met some incredible people, learned about everything from management to journalism, to how our university works. I am so glad to have been a part of one of the longest running student newspapers in the nation, and I also know that it is being left in excellent hands.

Ursa Anderson

Outgoing A&E Editor

Oh how I hate to say goodbye! I have worked for the Lawrentian for the past three years, first as a writer for A&E and then later as the section editor and I am so grateful for all of the experiences that have come from my time here. Reporting on everything from obscure IGLU performances to the wholesome Larry Privateers has given me such an appreciation for our rich campus life at Lawrence and I don’t think I would have been exposed to it had it not been for this organization. My staff of writers have been an absolute joy to work with and I will probably miss our silly little Monday Zoom meetings most of all. Thank you to them and all of the editorial board for making this farewell so bittersweet!

xoxo – Ursa

Sebastian Evans

Outgoing Photo Editor

It seems the end of my term as photo editor has come all too quickly! Starting my job just as the COVID-19 pandemic swept the nation isn’t an experience I’ll soon forget. Though the challenges we faced were unique, we managed to persevere. I’d like to extend my gratitude to our dedicated photographers, my fellow editors, as well as a special thanks to our Editor-In-Chief Dannielle!
