Weber State University Signpost Publish ALL Student News

Dear Editor in Chief Raychel Jayne Johnson

This letter and petition is about the interview The Signpost requested from Victoria Sethunya and following which you were going to publish her story. According to Victoria, you were going to do an article the first week when school reopened in fall 2013following the meeting she had with the new Weber State University, Charles Wight on August 27 th 2013. For the first time in Weber State University history, Victoria was allowed to meet in person with the university president. Also present in this meeting were members of the community and Victoria's friends, Sarah Boynton and Marie Rita Kelley. This meeting belongs in the Signpost:It has to be published.

Tabled in this meeting were the release of her diploma and her compensation for the extra expenses she incurred as a result of the university's errors causing among other things the delay in the release of her diploma due back in 2004. It was at this meeting that she was told she needed to sign an agreement before her diploma could be released. The said agreement and the letter that accompanied it can be found here:

I can't wait to learn more about how we can write with aloha!Your second point about how much prior knowledge to assume especially in the blog format where you have regular readers and occasional visitors is very interesting. I think I'll come back to this in another post.Joanna injmnkgjgc cgsuvmzpx

I wonder though if you ever find times that your writing doesn't quite come out that way? I know it does for me sometimes, and it's often because I'm distracted, short of time or somehow resentful of needing to write. When that happens I try and focus on one or two people that I'm writing for, smile with affection, allow myself to feel that sense of connection with them and then write.Joanna zdnaann kxcgjzq
