Thank you for reading, and I’m thrilled to be returning as your Editor-in-Chief this year! This is my third year contributing to the staff of The Harbour Voice and my second year as Editor-in-Chief. I’ve been writing fictional novels for the past six years, but I fell in love with journalism in my sophomore year. It seems like only yesterday that I shadowed Steven Keehner, The Harbour Voice’s 2016-2017 Editor-in-Chief. It’s even more surreal to have said goodbye to my former Co-Editor-in-Chief, Matilde Bechet last year. However, I’m excited to see what changes I can bring this year. Although it is bittersweet entering my senior year, I’m aiming to do all I can for readers. My goal has not changed. I want to provide quality articles that are worth your attention. This year we have promising writers amongst our midst, and I hope you’re just as excited as I am to read the news. Thank you.

Matilde Bechet Editor-In-Chief (2017-2018)
Dear Harbour Voice readers,
My name is Matilde Bechet, and all you need to know about me is that I am a senior, an avid reader, a candid person, and a dedicated student. I know these qualities will help me as I take on my role as Co-Editor-in-Chief, along with Shania Kuo, of The Harbour Voice. I understand that in the twenty-first century it is difficult to ignore social media and dive into reading a newspaper such as The Harbour Voice. Nevertheless, I intend to disintegrate this mentality with the goal of writing articles that serve the student body well. This year, The Harbour Voice will continue its journey of promoting its print and online issues. It is our staff’s mission to provide students and faculty with the opportunity to read the news our student reporters write regularly. It will be our goal to inform our community about critical events. The Harbour Voice staff welcomes contributions and commentating from all students in grades 9-12. Remember: you do not have to be an aspiring journalist to contribute to The Harbour Voice. You just have to have a voice.
Matilde Bechet, Co-Editor-in-Chief
Steven Keehner Editor-In-Chief (2016-2017)
Dear Harbour Voice readers,
Welcome back! I am excited to finally be your Editor-in-Chief for this school year. Ever since I began writing for The Harbour Voice two years ago, I knew that this was where I wanted to end up. I’m very honored to have this role, and while taking over for my predecessor, Wendy Finn, will certainly be a difficult challenge, it’s one I’m ready to take on. This is a huge year for The Harbour Voice, as we are launching our online paper, TheHarbourVoice.Org, along with our standard printed issues. I’m thrilled to lead The Harbour Voice into this new era, even if I’ll only have one year to make the most out of it. I want to make the paper something that truly represents the heart of OBHS: the students. With new additions such as our "Literary/Art" and "La Voz Hispana" sections, I hope to achieve this goal. I hope you enjoy our work this school year; we as a staff work very hard to ensure that what we write is of the highest quality for you, our readers. Thank you.
