The Beat of the Drum

David Lopez
The beginning of the end. That’s how I’d describe how I feel heading into my fourth year of journalism. I’ve had a lot of fun each year, and I’m sure that this year will be the same. I’ve witnessed this organization, The Beat of the Drum, shift from a printed periodical newspaper, to a fantastic website, to including several issues of awesome magazines, and now to moving to a new location, and preparing the next generation of journalists and writers. I’m sure I will learn as much from them, as they will from me. I’m looking forward to it.
