Thank you, Dr. Johnson

As Dr. Johnson retires, and I try to imagine what the Ram Page will be like without her guidance, I can’t help but think of the many ways she has helped and pushed us all. From the time I was hired, she has been very patient with me. When I was first brought onto the team, I did not know a thing about working on a newspaper. She trusted that I could learn, and I am very appreciative of that.

On the occasions that I have made mistakes, instead of a brutal callout, Dr. Johnson would simply ask me about my process. She would ask how I thought I could do better next time and offer advice along the way.

Furthermore, there have been several times that we, as a team, have been completely and utterly stumped for a solution to a problem. When we had no idea what to do, Dr. Johnson always pushed us in the right direction.

She was always patient and kind, no matter how many times we managed to take our meetings off the rails and forgot what our initial discussion or problem was. She always pushed us to do our best and find innovative solutions to our obstacles.

Though I am sad to see her leave, I’m glad she’ll get some time to kick back and relax.
