Yet another year has gone by for us here at The Pan American. We’ve covered various things concerning the UTPA community from budget cuts to the happenings of the NCAA Broncs. We’ve also taken budget hits of our own, going down from a 16-page paper to a 12-pager and instead utilizing the website more. Adding Flickr slide shows and so many more photos than we could for the printed paper, it is quite possible that you might be in one of them. But just because the year is over doesn’t mean we stop working.
Coming this summer you can expect four special summer issues, the first coming out June 2 continuing coverage of the Texas congress legislation responsible for deciding exactly how much money UTPA gets from the Education budget.
Along with the four summer issues we will be bringing more photos and video of all the goings on at and around campus from Artist Unanimous art shows to unique and interesting classes offered during the summer.
The summer also gives us a chance to try out new talent in our high school summer internship program. In this issue our first intern Analisa Cantu from Brownsville makes her Pan American debut.
Although, you don’t have to be a high school student to join our team. If you want to take on a fun, challenging and exciting experience working on the paper just might be where you should be. I know it was for me.
I’ve had the most enjoyment and learned so much working from reporter, editor then Editor-in-Chief at The Pan American. I’ve also gained an immense amount of valuable experience working in this fast-paced career-type environment in addition to the work I’ve done at school, I feel confident that I can successfully go into a professional atmosphere and execute my duties effectively.
These past years have honestly been amazing, unforgettable and just an all around blast.
