Editor's Note

As many of you know, today is my (Ashley) last day in SJMC. It's been so wonderful working with you all during my time here, and I appreciate everything I've learned and all the people I've gotten to meet. The J-School will always be my alma mater, so I won't be a stranger. Find me on LinkedIn to keep in touch!
