Editorial: Recap of a crazy '22-23 year

The Lookout Staff

From The Lookout Staff

It’s crazy to think this school year is already close to an end but, alas, it’s true.

So much has happened in the 2022-23 school year that The Lookout staff decided a quick recap is in order before we head into summer break. So here we go.

Queen Elizabeth II died after a 70-year rule. Russia invaded Ukraine. Hurricane Ian devastated Florida and South Carolina. Some enjoyed watching the 56th annual Country Music Association Awards, while others watched the Kansas City Chiefs win this year’s Lombardi Trophy.

Amber Heard announced she settled, months after the televised trial during which jurors found her guilty for defaming Johnny Depp in an op-ed for The Washington Post. Chris Rock released a special on Netflix to respond to being slapped at the 94th Academy Awards. Cuba legalized same-sex marriage. 

On Feb. 14 of this year, a gunman opened fire on the Michigan State University campus and took three lives, while injuring five other students. Our community still grieves and is struggling to heal but we are not alone. Gunviolencearchive.org tells us there have already been 146 mass shootings in 2023.

LCC was the victim of a cybersecurity attack. The Lookout won the “General Excellence” award, among others, from the Michigan Community College Press Association. Finally, LCC President Dr. Steve Robinson will be awarded the Paragon Award from Phi Theta Kappa later this month.

The Lookout staff has been happy to help capture all the news that made this year, both the good and the bad. We would like to take a moment to remind anyone who is struggling to find a smile; we did it all together and we are nearing the finish line.
