The Temple City Voice (TCV) is proud to announce that former editor-in-chief Margaret Thi has returned to serve as the editor emeritus.
As editor emeritus, Thi will dedicate a portion of her time to help run the Voice. “Margaret’s job is to basically act as an advisor to our high school executive staff,” commented Temple City Voice founder Matthew Wong.
During an online chat interview, Wong, also a former editor-in-chief, described Thi as “an outstanding individual who [possesses] the right qualities and experience.”
Thi is currently an incoming sophomore at the University of California, San Diego, majoring in psychology.
She was one of the first members to join the Voice in July 2006. Originally volunteering as a staff writer, Thi soon assumed the role of editor-in-chief during her senior year.
“I’m basically improving the executive team in terms of communication and leadership,” Thi stated, “and we’re going through a lot of changes this upcoming year because it’s time for a new approach to running TC Voice.”
“I think in our previous years, we were really concerned with branching out and we focused more on our interaction within the community, but I don’t think we [paid] enough attention to how we interacted as an organization,” Thi further explains, “so our main goal is to really improve communication within TCV in order to build up our reputation.”
Thi said, “It’ll definitely be new and improved as we begin our fourth year as a volunteer newspaper.”
Wong has expressed warm regards for Thi’s return.
“I’m thrilled that Margaret has returned to help the Voice,” said Wong, “and I think having Margaret on board will greatly benefit the Voice and its executive staff.”
Thi assumed the role of editor emeritus this past June and is expected to continue to serve in the position for the remainder of the summer.
