Thank You and Farewell: a Closing Note from the Senior Editors

Hello TPS!

Can you believe it? Another school year is coming to an end! As you complete your final exams and put the finishing touches on academic projects, we’re incredibly excited to wrap up the clay season with a note of thanks and a special announcement.

To our readers: thank you for your time and active commentary, your words of encouragement to the clay team, and your eager participation in clay‘s creative contests. We’ve been delighted to serve you.

To our columnists: thank you for your dedication to crafting the informative, creative, and entertaining articles that form the heart of clay. The e-zine could not exist without you.

To our editing team: thank you for your attention to detail in editing content and your graceful leadership in organizing your columnist teams. Each one of you made our job infinitely easier and we felt privileged to work with you all.

To our PR team: thank you for using your boundless energy and creativity to create a vibrant community for TPSers around the world while keeping them up to date on the latest clay content. We thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful photos and interactive games.

Although we feel sad to leave clay, our team, and our readers behind, we are delighted to conclude our time at the e-zine with a very special announcement.

Please join us in heartily welcoming the 2021-2022 Senior Editors… drum roll please… Julia Holmgren and Mari Stanton! Julia and Mari have shown strong ability as writers, editors, and gracious leaders. (Furthermore, they have all the makings of clay‘s next pair of great benevolent dictators). We wish them all the best next year, and we could not be more confident that clay is in capable hands!

Julia Holmgren


Mari Stanton
