The 4/26 issue of the CT arrived a few weeks after it was published in my Chicago mailbox with a hand-written note from Ray MacConnell on the back. “Check out pages 16 & 17 — a total surprise! – Ray”

Surely, had the CT contacted all former editors and staffers who in some way has had their life touched by Ray, the cost to print the volume of stories generated would have exceeded the CT budget for the entire year.

The tribute illustrates that the greatest gift of working at the CT is not the byline or the all-nighters it takes to produce the paper. The greatest gift is having the opportunity to develop a friendship with the a person who is not only there for all your smiles and tears during college, but the onese that come long after commencement.
