Dear Readers,

As we finish up our final responsibilities on the paper — editing our last words, designing our last pages — we would like to reflect on this past volume. These responsibilities, though sometimes overwhelming, have always been a privilege. Over the past year, we have had the privilege of working as Senior Staff of The Lion’s Roar, and we feel lucky to have been able to provide you with a newspaper that, we hope, has piqued your interest at one point or another. We began our year at the National Scholastic Press Association conference in Minneapolis, where we met thousands of other journalists and shared ideas, and which reinforced our pride in The Roar. Almost all the other journalists put together their publications during a class in which they were graded for their work. At South, members of The Roar and other publications spend their free time working on their publication. Not only do these voluntary hours show how devoted each student is, but also how dedicated we are to voicing our opinions and contributing to our community. Although the published newspaper is what readers see, we most cherish the process of putting the paper together. It was never quick; we consistently ended up working all night and into the morning before we sent the paper to the printer. Each time, we would try to be more efficient, but those late nights led to some of our best memories. From brainstorming headlines to visually representing kids specializing in sports from a young age, we focused on the details of The Roar to make sure it turned out just the way we wanted it to. When our parents woke up the morning of send-up, they would always be surprised to see each of us in the same positions we were in ten hours earlier, only now surrounded by empty Chinese food containers and piles of marked up proofs of pages. We want to thank everyone who has contributed to the newspaper this year. Our advisers — Ashley Elpern, Brian Baron, Thomas Murphy and Paul Estin — have always encouraged us, even through the late hours of the night. Our parents have given us the support — and the food — that we need to finish each issue. Everyone on our staff — whether you wrote one opinions piece or extensive news articles every issue — has been invaluable. You have brought a variety of interests to the paper and have delved into diverse topics. We admire your enthusiasm and thank you for it. But even if you were interviewed for one article; or if you picked up the paper on a Friday morning and glanced at the front-page story, finding one quotation that interested you; or if you discovered a new viewpoint; or if you had a discussion in class or with your friends about an article, you made the paper great. You are the reason we continue to search for the most important topics to bring up in the community, for you have created a community receptive to discussing and thinking critically about these topics. For all of us, the community aspect of The Roar is valuable. We know we can always rest on the futon or grab a bite to eat from the mini fridge, or just come to room 1201 if we want to see a familiar face. We want everyone, from reporters to business managers, to feel this way, and we hope this feeling continues into the next volume. We are confident that if anyone can create a warm, positive environment, it’s Volume 29. We are so proud of the work and the effort that our rising Senior Staff has put into the newspaper, and we hand the reins to them excited to see in what new directions they will guide The Roar. Over this volume, we’ve often dug out old papers from our archives. When looking back at papers from five or even 15 years ago, we notice how much has changed, but also how much will never change. We on The Roar will always strategize about how to fill white space, try to make up clever “Join The Roar!” boxes and feel emotional about series commas. We know that Volume 29 will make some great changes while always carrying on the true spirit of The Roar. Thanks for everything, 2012! Love, Volume 28 Senior Staff Emily Breuer

Lolo! You have filled our hearts with gladness. You have lit up our days and nights.

Youssef, Congratulations to you and the entire Class of 2012 on all of your accomplishments. With love from your family.

The Road Not Taken Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;

You are the girl of our dreams. Sail on, honey bunny! We love you. Mom, Dad, Dylan, Ben... & Ruby Dee

Congratulations, Class of 2012!

Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim Because it was grassy and wanted wear, Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I marked the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. -Robert Frost

With love from The Lion’s Roar
