Transcript Managing Editor I'm not a yearbook person. I wasn't supposed to do stuff like this. I'm an engineer, for crying out loud! Building power plants and driving chemical separations is easy. Editing a yearbook? That's hard. I managed to get through a full year of it, somehow, and enjoyed myself enough that I begged Ashley to let me do it again after she got re-elected Editor in Chief. But enough of that nonsense; everyone's just reading this for the acknowledgements anyway, so let's get on it. It feels like I wrote almost half the stories in this yearbook. The reason I did not write all of them is because we had a talented team of writers who took the stories I didn't want to. The most diligent of these just happened to be Richard Whitrock, who always put off his stories until just after the last minute, but still managed to astound me with his brilliance. Thankfully, I did not have to take very many pictures for this book, because I'm a horrible photographer. Instead, we had a team of talented photographers to fill our pages with the pretty pictures in this book. Special mention must go out to Lauren Wilson, the photo editor, for saving us on numerous occasions and taking tons of sports pictures, as well as Yvonne, Pin, and of course, Kena Alvarado, our superstar and hero. She's also got a huge crush on me, even if she doesn't know it yet. Our section editors kept things interesting. Brandy Stoesz had some brilliant layouts and wonderful pages, but unfortunately had to leave us mid-semester due to time constraints. Crys Lewis also left us after I hanged her freaky McDonald's doll from the rafters one too many times. Michelle Lehmann never once turned in a page on time. However, she kept us informed of her progress, and put together a marvelous Academics section. Her yearbook enthusiasm can only be matched by my boss. Lacie Burke impressed Ashley and myself by actually volunteering to take the sports section. Her brilliant layouts, wonderful captions, and stellar work ethic were phenomenal throughout the year. Sadaf Farooqui got off to a rough start, but pulled everything together right at the end. She had the longest, and arguably the hardest section, but with a little help from Donald Scherer and Michelle, everything got done. Cortney Martin wasn't even supposed to be an editor, but after our original People Editor quit the week before school started, her impressive application prompted Ashley and I to offer her the position. She accepted, and exceeded both our expectations with her punctuality, her dedication, and her page layout skills. And then there's Ashley, my boss. Our relationship, or whatever, always kept the office just tense enough that no one ever knew what might come next. When I was a good boy, she rewarded me with popcorn and candy. When I was a bad boy, she scolded me until I assumed a fetal position in the corner and prayed for nuclear war. Most of all, she inspired me, taught me, and showed me that even an engineer can do this stuff. Thank you, Ashley. Long live the Cat Master! Taking a break The stunningly handsome, extraordinarily talented Matthew E. Caster pauses for a moment to pose with his beloved "Cubby" doll. Caster's desk and bulletin board were always uniquely decorated with strange and mysterious items such as a bust of Augustus Caesar and a small white tile which reminded the world that "There's no one exactly like Matthew."
