This issue showcases our annual “Where Are They Headed?” feature on graduating high school seniors. When we launched this feature in 2013, students often dropped off hard copies of their kindergarten photos in a white envelope for our designer to scan. Today’s seniors were born into a digital world. Their childhood photos have been captured digitally from the day they were born, making it easier for parents to capture all those little moments. It is simpler for us, too, but I always enjoyed meeting the students rushing in at deadline to submit those photos. I wonder how many will use ChatGPT to submit their stories next year? Ugh. Not ready for this changing world. But you know who is? The Class of ’23. Also in this issue, meet 1958 Lamar grads who reflect on just how much the world has changed since they graduated. Spoiler alert: A lot has changed, but one thing that’s remained is their friendships. Congratulations, Class of 2023, and thank you to the members of the Class of 1958 who shared memories with us.
