As I look back at my experiences thus far on The Cowl, the two people that first come to mind are my former Arts & Entertainment editors, Patrick Lovett ’17 and Paige Calabrese ’18. If it was not for Pat and Paige, I would not have had the confidence to even think about stepping into an editorial position. So, thank you to Pat, Paige, as well as my former co-editors Abigail Czerniecki ’19 and Patrick Fuller ’21, for so much support. If you had told me during my freshman year writing for A&E that I would be Editor-in-Chief senior year, I would have never believed it.
I struggle to put into words just how deep-rooted and profound The Cowl is in Providence College history. For years, it has been a resource for students, faculty, alumni, and more to hear the news from us: the students. Through The Cowl, our perspectives and words find a platform in which they can be acknowledged and understood by others. To have the opportunity to lead an amazing, dedicated, and talented group of writers and editors in making our mark in this history is an honor that I will cherish forever.
Looking ahead to next school year, I remind myself of the legacy of the current Editor-in-Chief, Taylor Godfrey, and Associate Editor-in-Chief, Abigail Czerniecki ’19. As I step into this position, I look to Taylor and Abby as examples of what a strong and dependable leader in our community is. Their hours of hard work, dedication, and support for the entirety of The Cowl staff motivates my AEIC Katherine Torok ’20 and I to follow in their footsteps.
With that, I would like to thank Taylor and Abby for their incredible leadership and encouragement this year. You will be dearly missed! Going forward, Katie and I are excited for another amazing year on The Cowl!
