Greetings Pima Community College students, employees and community members! Welcome to the semester of Spring 2015.
This semester marks a big change for those of us at the Aztec Press and as we say farewell to long-time Editor-in-Chief Andrew Paxton and usher in two new EICs.
As students, we walk through the trials of academia together. We are deeply connected by the late hours working on homework, cramming for tests and searching for our paths in life.
Without even knowing one another, we understand each other better then we have ever probably noticed.
We have the fortune to live in a time when journalists get a bad rap. For us, personally, it is one of our goals to change this stigma and bring journalism back to its roots to inform and entertain our readers.
In order to do that, however, we need your help. We want to strengthen our relationship with students at Pima as well with other campuses.
We have a responsibility to our news team, to mentor and assist them in any way possible. We have a responsibility to the Aztec Press, to maintain its high journalistic standards and continue as an award winning student publication.
But most of all, we have a responsibility to you, the reader and students of Pima.
If you have a story that you want to talk about, let us know. If you read a story that your particularly enjoyed, or perhaps one you didn’t, leave us a message, drop by the newsroom or leave a comment online at aztecpressonline.com and tell us what you think about Pima news.
This semester we plan to include an in-depth Spotlight feature every issue, as well as online extras.
As the world becomes more and more technology driven, we want to keep up with the whir. We will be featuring more multimedia so you can see stories in action.
As your co-editors-in-chief this semester, we will strive to bring you the most current, accurate information, every issue.
We don’t take this challenge lightly. We take it on with love, hard work, dedication and lots of leg work. We are basically going to stalk our sources until we get all the information we need. All in a day’s work, right?
We do this because we love it and because you have the right to know the truth. This is our college, our future, our voice and a journey we share.
We can’t wait to see what all of you do this semester and the biggest honor will be sharing your stories.
It’s the best way we can help Pima be the best it can be, for all of us.
