The State Hornet

A Letter from the Editor

State Hornet Staff

May 13, 2014

With this being the final issue of the State Hornet for the school year, I would like to thank everyone for their dedication and readership.Over the past two semesters, my staff and I brought you the news to the best of our ability that informed the students, faculty and staff at Sacramento State on the important happenings on campus and in the surrounding community.Now, I confidently say I completed my goal of running a professional-style newspaper.I shared a quote from the former Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham during my editor-in-chief interview that said, “what we print and what we don’t print matter a lot.”After 29 issues, we have covered news on the CSU system, internal Sac State investigations, events in the community and the university’s 21 athletic teams. But I could not have done this without a staff that stood by my side and shared my understanding of what good journalism is. I am forever grateful for group of people that I not only call my colleagues, but my friends as well.Finally, I would like to thank the Sac State journalism department, its chair Steve Buss, and every instructor I took a class with. Sac State was not my first choice coming out of community college, but after I was accepted in the spring of 2012 and gained the friends and mentors I now have, I could not imagine getting my degree from any other university.I wish everyone the best and although I will write for many different publications while pursuing my journalism career, this four-year college newspaper will always be close to my heart. - Ryan Kuhn, Editor-in-Chief
