Most of the editors – both incoming and outgoing – attended our final staff meeting of the semester this afternoon. With a little 80’s music in the background, we noshed on cake and chatted.
Once everyone finished their delectable dessert, I gave a short speech and presented Bari (outgoing EDGE) and Stacey (outgoing sports) with plaques honoring their time as editors at The Miami Hurricane.
We then discussed a number of ideas I had compiled and e-mailed last night. The ideas came from the Florida Society of Newspaper Editor online and multimedia sessions I sat in on Saturday, Friday’s meeting with Randy Stano and other ideas that had been accumulating in my head.
Everyone will be brainstorming ideas during break and contemplating ways to continue improving the print and online editions. We will surely come back stronger than ever.
PS. We finally hung up this year’s covers in the design office. Thanks to incoming editors Matt Bunch (sports) and Dan Buyanovsky (EDGE) for their assistance.
