Leimenstoll, Myrick deserve our thanks


Today, we welcome the Lambden administration to the helm of student self-governance. Over the past few weeks, I have worked closely with Christy and his team, and I am confident that they will soar.

However, I am writing today as a Carolina student to thank the outgoing student body president and vice president for their exceptional service to this University.

It is no secret that this year has been a tumultuous one for our beloved Carolina.

We have been forced to say goodbye to Chancellor Holden Thorp, lost peers, faced harsh budget realities and engaged in difficult dialogues about campus safety.

In spite of these challenges, Will and Rachel never flinched.

I witnessed these two remarkable leaders bang their heads against the wall late at night, fighting for the bedrock principles of this University: affordability, accessibility and compassion.

I feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to work alongside these two as an executive branch officer; however, I feel even more lucky to be a student under their leadership.

The University is a better place for their fierce advocacy, and every Tar Heel owes Will and Rachel a sincere “Thank you!”
