Stepping down, but not stepping away

By: Sarah Rowan, Editor-in-Chief

Dear Towson community,

Due to a variety of personal reasons, I have come to the conclusion that it is in my best interest to step down from my position as editor-in-chief of The Towerlight, effective mid-week.

This was a decision that I’ve grappled with for a long time, and it definitely wasn’t an easy one to make. Having thought about this for a while, I know now that I need to take time to focus wholeheartedly on my physical and mental health, and to place a higher priority on my academic success.

While I will no longer hold a leadership position at The Towerlight, I still fully intend to contribute to the paper as a senior staff writer. I’m extremely excited to keep writing and assisting in office work, in a smaller capacity, and I also look forward to expanding my personal student involvement to other areas of campus life, too.

I have full faith that the paper will be in great hands under its new leadership, who we will vote in during our editorial board meeting on Wednesday.

I have loved every minute of my work here for the past two years, and I do not intend for that to end. The people I’ve met, the lessons I’ve learned and the stories I’ve seen unfold have made this job one of the most rewarding, albeit challenging, things I have ever done.

It has been, and will continue to be, a privilege to report on just about every aspect of campus life here at Towson.

Thank you all for your understanding.

With love,
