Missing Krissy

Kristin Roots

As I prepare to graduate and bid farewell to The Mountain Echo, I find myself reflecting on the incredible journey that has been my time as a part of this school newspaper. When I first stepped into the newsroom as an editor, I was filled with a mix of excitement and imposter syndrome, venturing out of my comfort zone and into a realm I had always longed to be a part of.

However, through the guidance and support of my fellow editors and the invaluable writing workshops, I learned so much about writing and discovered a wealth of knowledge and growth. From honing my skills to mastering the art of organization, meeting deadlines and being even more detail-oriented than before, I have emerged as a stronger and more confident individual.

The Mountain Echo has not only provided me with a platform to express my thoughts and opinions but has also granted me the opportunity to learn a lot about different aspects of the campus community. As I close this chapter and embark on the next exciting phase of my life, I carry with me cherished memories and the profound realization that my experience at

The Mountain Echo will forever remain a defining moment in my life.

With a heart full of gratitude, I say goodbye to this extraordinary institution that has shaped me in ways I never thought possible, knowing that the lessons learned, and friendships made will continue to guide me long after I graduate.
