As the 2012 spring step show came to a close I hugged my line brother and we realized that our time at WSSU is coming to an end.
Normally when you read a goodbye piece, you see people telling you how to live and what to do during your time here; I’m going to do that but not in the same way that others have done.
The first thing that I want to do is say my goodbyes to all of those who have shaped Jordan “Killa” Holloway into the guy that I am.
To my crew of brothers ,“200”, thanks for the constant support throughout my endeavors as a Ram. Everyone needs to have people in their corner rooting them on and I wouldn’t trade you guys in for the world. From the parties to the “real talk” conversations that kept me grounded I thank you for all that you guys have done for me.
To my brown and gold family, I told you guys this a million times, “I love you.” We have had our ups and downs, many victories and defeats. Whenever I needed you, you have been there and I am so grateful for that. Thanks for knowing how much The News Argus means to me and letting me fulfill my duties to the newspaper without anyone telling me that the frat was more important than what I do for the paper.
I leave this university having obtained more than a degree, but a better understanding for life and the things that happen in it. I have lived in situations that will forever change how I think and view things in this world. I will always remember one conversation I had with my friend, Justin Jenkins, when he told me “These are the days that we will tell our children about make sure it’s a good story that they hear.”
I just want to say thanks for all the help I received from the Mass Communications Department in obtaining my degree. Thanks Dr. Saddler for remaining hard on me even when I wanted an easy route to an “A” grade, and thanks Dr. Cobb for nailing that point through my head. After completing the work for the courses that you two taught I realized that I need to apply myself and go beyond the call to get the results that I wanted. I know that wasn’t an easy lesson to teach, but it was a lesson learned either way.
To the coming staffers next year, please know that this is not an office hour’s kind of job. You will stay late and even sacrifice a Saturday or two per semester to make sure that this work gets done.
Good luck Rams, and see you at homecoming.
