“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader”
While I’ll never know if I have, I started working as the adviser of Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s student-run newspaper, The Penn, earlier this year to inspire people. To inspire the students that are so much like the student I was when I worked there as an IUP undergrad.
The Penn has evolved so much in such a short amount of time. Not only is it a place where a new staff comes in yearly, but the newspaper itself changes with the times — with a growing online presence, evolving readership and in many other ways.
The staff finished off the last of the fall 2015 semester’s newspapers today – the annual holiday edition – and I’m feeling pretty great about the work that these students have done. I couldn’t ask for a better bunch to have spent my first full semester with.
I can’t wait to see what they’ll dream up next.
