For those of you who don’t read HWC Announce emails but do read the blog (I would love to see the Venn diagram showing those sets of intersecting populations), I happily and proudly recognize the outstanding achievements of our student-run newspaper staff at The Herald, with particular recognition for Greg Fairbanks, Editor-in-Chief, Rachel Banning, Managing Editor, and Molly Turner, Faculty Adviser.
