Letter from the Editor


Carina Swonger, '21, Editor in Chief

Hello, Chipmunk family!

I cannot believe that summer is practically here! This school year has been a big one for The Word; we brought back the student-run newspaper, bigger and better than ever before. It has been an amazing journey working with such talented writers, editors, and photographers. As our audience, I hope you have enjoyed our new e-newspaper and benefitted from our updated news technology.

As I reflect on this past year, I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to serve as the Copy Editor for The Word. Writing and editing articles about the things you, the student body, accomplished was like seeing Chapelle through a new set of eyes. From Campus Ministry nights to Mock Trial tournaments and everything in between, it has been a great learning experience to read about all you guys do around here.

I am happy to announce that I will be serving as Editor in Chief on the newspaper staff next year. With eyes looking forward to the future, I hope to help The Word publish more articles more frequently. I want to make sure that everyone feels well represented on our website and that you are seeing the content you want to see. Chapelle, YOU are the reason the members of The Word do what we do; we want the world to know how brightly you shine. Never hesitate to come to me, Mrs. Taix, Mrs. Kelley, or another staff member with your questions, comments, or concerns about our news site.

Thank you for being such a fantastic school to write about and photograph. Have a safe and restful summer, and I look forward to writing about you in the fall!

Yours truly,

Carina Swonger, Editor in Chief of The Word
