My greatest accomplishment at the Technician was being named All-American Newspaper, 00:00:00.000 - 00:00:06.327
because that was something that they said couldn't be done, and "they" being the NC State faculty. 00:00:06.327 - 00:00:15.442
Not all of them said that, Dr. Kochersberger believed in us, but most of them said that it couldn't be done. 00:00:15.442 - 00:00:21.790
It was worth it, and that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to show everybody, those thirty thousand students at NC State, 00:00:21.790 - 00:00:32.253
that your newspaper was worth your student fees, that your newspaper was just as good as the product that's just down the street that has a full pledged journalism school, 00:00:32.253 - 00:00:45.122
that your product, that's being put together by engineers, physicists, computer scientists, and a couple writing English majors, is just as good, 00:00:45.122 - 00:00:56.598
and that's what we wanted to do. That was our proudest moment. 00:00:56.598 - 00:01:02.717
