Dear Clayton State Community,
We, the CYGNET editing staff, would like to extend our sincerest apologies to Ms. Robbin Elaine Smith for misrepresenting her work in the 2015 issue of the CYGNET. The work, “Down Under,” which appears on page 37 of this year’s issue, was as attributed to Stephanie Garcia, who had also submitted work to the CYGNET for consideration. As reparations, we have promised to include Ms. Smith’s work in next year’s issue of the CYGNET, though this consideration does not excuse the mistrust our actions have fostered among one of our valued contributors.
Furthermore, we would also like to apologize to Ms. Latonya Pennington, whose name appears erroneously in the current issue as “Latonya ‘Pe’ Pennington,” for our mistake with her name.
We hope that both students involved in this matter will continue to enrich the CYGNET, its staff, and its readers with their works, and we will continue to strive to provide a means by which Clayton State students may achieve the appropriate exposure for their talents.
The CYGNET Editing Team
