‘We’re just starting to brush the surface of what the paper can become,’ said Phillips, who served as sports editor and managing editor in the fall. ‘The Tech Talk has always been a quality paper, but we now have more student involvement when it comes to producing the paper. It’s really an exciting time to be part of the staff. It’s going to leave a footprint in the evolution of The Tech Talk.’

Maines has served as Web/graphics editor for three quarters.
