Shauna Burgon Valentine, editor!

Shauna is the editor with her pal Roxy Johnson of "McKay Today," the magazine of the David O. McKay School of Education at Brigham Young University.

This is the fifth edition she has helped to publish. Robert thinks it is the best college magazine ever! The Fall 2007 issue focuses on "Timely and Timeless Teacher Preparation" with an interesting article about Karl G. Maeser, who was the first leader of BYU a few years after the Mormons arrived in Utah.

Karl G. Maeser said: "No teacher should enter the schoolroom without first offering a prayer, 'Father, bless me today. Give me Thy Spririt to discern the needs and desires of these little ones, read their thoughts and feel the pulsation of their hearts, that I can look into their eyes as they look into mine, and know that we love each other.'"

Robert's grandparents, parents, sisters and three children have graduated from BYU; Shauna's mother Margaret graduated from BYU, too. She and Amy Valentine were friends and lived in the Amanda Kinght residence hall. Grandmother Amy has always said that Margaret was one of the most beautiful women on campus. Decades later, Amy would often stop by Margaret's home in Orem to visit on her way to Salt Lake City .
