I would like to welcome you all to our first online publication of the Monitor. We are a literary magazine dedicated to applauding and promoting creative pieces throughout the student body, however they may manifest themselves.
This is our first publication since our rejuvenation and I am proud to be able to continue my role as Editor-in-Chief. However, I did not accomplish this alone. Therefore, I would like to thank the staff for their hard work thus far and the students who submit pieces outside of the club. Furthermore, I would like to thank our new faculty advisor, Mrs. Doyle, for really pushing to help us jump-start the club this year.
Finally, I would be remised if I did not acknowledge the commitment and devotion of our long time faculty advisor Mr. Baird. Therefore, I am dedicating this first issue to him for mentoring me into accepting this position as Editor–in–Chief, and for developing my creative writing skills through his sometimes harsh constructive criticism. While we all wish him well as his new position on the Page, he has been and will be missed.
