A Farewell to tableau
Hello, fellow tableau reader. You probably don’t know me, but my name is Ethan Hamlin and for the last year I’ve served as one of tableau’s editors. It’s been an amazing experience, and I’m very proud of the output that our section had during the past year. Unfortunately, the adage that all good things come to an end holds true. This year, I hang my hat and let a new generation of editors take my place. In light of this transition, I’d like to give deep and sincere thanks to the people who helped make tableau possible every week!
First, I’d like to give thanks to The Cavalier Daily staff — especially the assistant managing editor and production sections that we worked so closely with. In particular, I’d like to thank Stephen Belyea for designing our page (it looked great every week), Kristin Hawkins for keeping us on track (because our section often needed it) and Cait Speaker and Conor Wakeman for keeping our stories coherent and readable.
I’d also like to give a big thanks to our associate editors. Even though she was only with us for a semester, we could always count on Anne Larimer Hart to help with tableau’s little responsibilities. Dave Replogle also has been a great help, offering valuable input and covering for us when Anne had to leave the section. We all hope that he’ll get involved in tableau again after he returns from studying abroad in Spain! Finally, thanks to Sarah Sherman, our senior associate editor who designed the calendar every week. Even with her busy graduate schedule, she always found time for her Cavalier Daily responsibilities.
A special thanks goes out to my fellow editor Stephanie Garcia, who’s done just as much — if not more — than me to put together this section. Fortunately for you readers, she’ll be staying on for another term. I’m sure we’ll see the section grow even more with her leadership!
Lastly but most importantly, I’d like to thank all the writers who continued to submit great stories week after week. You all are the foundation of this section, and we’ve loved reading each and every one of your stories.
I’ll continue checking up on tableau even after I’ve graduated and I hope to see the section grow even more with new leadership. Expect great things from your new associates — Scott Geftman, Rachel Lim and senior associate Rob Molster — and my replacement editor, Campbell Bird. Each of these individuals has proven him or herself a capable and motivated contributor to tableau, and I wish them all a great term!
