Becoming Immortalized On the Walls of Columbia

I walk through this hallway every day when I’m on my way to class and when I head to work. I stop and look at each of the old stories and pages of The Columbia Chronicle that have been blown up in size for everyone to view and think how amazing it is for these people who worked at the paper from previous years to sort of be immortalized on the walls of Columbia and be part of something bigger than themselves. I know these portraits are from the 2009-2010 school year, and I hope maybe eventually new and up-to-date pages from the 2010-2011 school year can also be included, it would be wonderful to see my name along with my other co-workers’ names up there!
