Farewell part IV

(Thanos Has snapped his fingers and this person is fading away from the newspaper…)

Tyler Towne, Sports Editor

Well, its hard to believe that two years have come and gone already, and I am definitely going to miss IVCC. It really is true when they say “No place so close, can take you so far.” But honestly that statement is only true if you allow it to take you somewhere.

I am a kid with a true passion for just about any sport you throw at me. I was able to be so involved with the basketball program and sports section of the paper, and I absolutely adored it. I have to take some time to thank our sponsor Lori Cinotte, because without her support and patience, the IVSN and sports section would not be the same. Sports were something I knew I wanted to be a part of while I was here. With no athletic ability to speak of, the ways I got to be involved were more than I ever could have imagined, and that credit goes to Lori.

There are a lot of excellent resume builders right here in the Illinois Valley, but you need to go out and find them.

Sure, you can sit around and be bummed that you aren’t at some crazy university, partying every night, but you can also begin the rest of your life, right here. I found jobs in radio, television and even the newspaper right in my own backyard, and the experience I have gained of the last two years will stick with me for the rest of my life.

My parting advice to anyone at IVCC is just to get out there and try new things, and eventually you will find something that you like. Once you find something you like, do your best to build upon that until you eventually fall in love with it and make it into a career.

One final time, this has been Tyler Towne, play-by-play man and sports editor, flying from the Eagle’s nest one final time. I will always be an Eagle and the last two years have been great.
