By Taylor Brown, Editor In Chief
Hello Horizons readers! My name is Taylor Brown, and I am the new Editor In Chief of Horizons Newspaper. I am from Santa Rosa, Calif. and I am a sophomore in Space Physics with a minor in Humanities. I sought to work with Horizons as soon as I stepped foot on campus and contributing to this paper has been one of the greatest highlights of my time at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University! I am beyond excited to lead Horizons into the fall semester, and for the years to come.
My primary goal for this year is to make Horizons the most reliable, relevant, and interesting source of news and information for ERAU staff, students, and parents. Last year, our readers expressed concern regarding the quality of our paper, but I am pleased to inform you that our executive team is dedicated to rebuilding and rebranding Horizons Newspaper. Our mission is to produce articles that are pertinent to our readers, that are informative, compelling, and important. The staff and students of ERAU have the right to a news platform that works to serve them, and I will do all I can to ensure Horizons fulfills that obligation.
Over the summer, the Horizons team has been working hard to prepare for the coming semester. We have made vast improvements to our website [http://horizons-newspaper.com] (thanks to our Head Online Editor William Noujiam), increased content diversity, and made plans to engage with the student population to a greater degree.
Currently, we are hoping to welcome new staff to our organization! If you have an interest in writing, photography, photo-editing, or media as a whole, I encourage you to look into working with us. We are also looking for a Head Financial Officer to join our executive team and play a part in the management of the Horizons budget. We pay by the hour, with opportunities for bonuses. Working for Horizons is a wonderful way to partake in ERAU culture, meet new people, learn about the campus, and share your work. Our team is composed of passionate, creative, and driven individuals with a common interest in journalism, and we would love for you to be a part of it!
Ultimately, Horizons is here to serve the staff and students of ERAU Prescott. If you want to see something published, have criticisms or concerns, or are interested in being hired, please feel free to contact me at [firstname.lastname@example.org].
We release a new issue every two weeks, and our work can be found on our website or in any of the blue Horizons boxes around campus. I urge you to pick up a copy, and check out the latest news, reviews, profiles, editorials, and more! I look forward to this coming year, and hope you take as much pleasure in reading Horizons as I do writing it!
