Last weekend, I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Health Education. Thus, I now bid farewell to this wonderful publication that has allowed me to share with you a wide range of topics such as political opinions, sports, personal experiences, and national holidays. I have so much to be thankful for from this past year of writing and editing, and also much of which to be proud.
My gratitude to the Editorial Staff here at TheTexas Horn for allowing me to be a part of this amazing team and contribute to so many of our correspondents’ fantastic pieces covering so many topics across the political map. We did so much together— from sharing topic ideas to creating podcasts over significant issues of the day. I know all of you will be in good hands as you move forward with the new staff members you have hired to succeed in my position.
A very special thanks goes out to the Editor-in-Chief here at TheTexas Horn: Chris Schlak. When I heard of this publication’s launch on Texas Independence Day (March 2nd) of this year, I enthusiastically sent a rough draft of my very first article for TheTexas Horn with the hope that it would be published for me to share with all of you. Sure enough, Chris reached back out to me and invited me to be a part of the editorial team—I gladly accepted. Since then, I have enjoyed every waking moment with this team, and I could not have done it without his support.
Lastly, my heartfelt, Texas-sized, extremely special token of appreciation goes out to you: the reader. I would not have done what I did had it not been for your clicks on my articles. To hear how much you have enjoyed reading my articles has given me so much pride and joy. My only request from you all is to please continue supporting The Texas Horn in their weekly periodicals. Please continue to read their awesome content and contribute as much as you can to the reporters’ hard work in these endeavors. Please support this fully independent news website and allow it to continue to grow. The Texas Horn’s work is made possible by your readership, so please help and support them.
For the final time, this is Daniel Villalva signing off! Thank you, may God Bless you all, and may God Bless both Texas and America!!!!
