Transcript Makin HlSTORY "We've come a long way in a short time, but we still have a lot to do. Every person on this staff is committed to giving the Houstonian a new image." Managing Editor Matt Rogers Lisa Chmiola Founded in 1934, the Houstonian yearbook strives to capture the essence and spirit of the school year. "(Working on yearbook staff] is an opportunity for us to witness a lot of activities and momentous occasions on campus!' said Photo Editor Edmond Vahedi. As part of the editorial staff, Vahedi's job included sending photographers to various activities and developing film and prints afterwards. But photos only tell half of the story, and a Houstonian would not be complete without stories. Stories complete the memories, and help refresh them years later when alumni look back at their yearbooks. They also give invaluable experience to the writers on interviewing and editing techniques. Once the photos and stories were turned in, it was the job of the section editors to incorporate them into a clean and eye-catching layout on the pages. "It's been a challenge to help turn the Houstonian into something we can be proud of," said Managing Editor Matt Rogers. In addition to his duties assisting the editor in chief by overseeing staff progress, Rogers was also responsible for the layout of the majority of the book. The Houstonian became something the staff and the rest of the UH community could be proud of. Due to the staffs hard work and tireless efforts, it enjoyed a larger student participation in promotions, such as photo week and the homecoming old book sale and raffle. The university community provided additional support including campus organizations like the Student Program Board, whose Pirate TV program featured yearbook staff members on the Student Video Network in October and the Homecoming Committee, which helped coordinate the first-ever donation of yearbooks to the king and queen. Off-campus groups like radio station 104 KRBE and Astro World were a few of the many who donated prizes for the photo week raffle. This was the kind of support that made the staff members feel their efforts were worthwhile, and without a focused and enthusiastic staff, there would not be a Houstonian to have pride in. "The biggest part (of putting together a successful yearbook) has been trying to find a great staff, which we did!' Rogers said. "I believe we found nine of the best yearbook staff members in Houston." Organizations Photo Editor Edmond Vahedi shoots the action at the UH vs. Memphis football game. in addition to going to games and events, he also developed prints and film to make the yearbook memorable for himself and the uh community.
