After 29 Issues, CXL Bids Farewell to the Newsroom

By tradition, each board of The Phillipian paints the walls of the Newsroom upon their departure.

This paper marks the first issue of The Phillipian, vol. CXLI. Following The Phillipian’s board turnover last week, CXL’s Upper Management, Editors, and Managers have departed from the Newsroom.

Reflecting on the past year working with CXL, former President Rudd Fawcett ’18 expressed pride for the work of CXL and appreciation for time spent with the board.

Rudd Fawcett ’18, former President, said, “I’m so proud of all that CXL has accomplished, and I will miss spending time with such capable, kind, and funny people. They are truly what make The Phillipian what it is, and to have been able to work alongside them throughout this past year has been an honor.”

Looking ahead, Fawcett is excited to see the work of the CXLI board.

“I’m really looking forward to see how The Phillipian grows as a newspaper under the new leadership of CXLI, and I’m excited to see how the paper transforms throughout the next year. I have the utmost faith and confidence in CXLI, and I can’t wait to see how they’ll make The Phillipian their own and how they’ll take advantage of the unique experiences that come with being part of The Phillipian,” continued Fawcett.

Cecelia Vieira ’18, former Executive Editor, echoed Fawcett’s confidence in the incoming board.

She said, “I’m really excited to see what CXLI does with the standard Phillipian format. I’m excited to see more stories, more in-depth investigations, more creative layout, more playing with the tenets of journalism, and I think they’re absolutely, 100 percent ready for that.”

When asked for final thoughts and words of advice for CXLI, Fawcett simply said, “Find your Newsroom.”
