Letter 
T
hey may not be able to leap over the Alico building or run faster than
Robert Grifn III, but these individuals
serve the world and the Waco community inincredible ways.
From Superman to Spider-Man,
superheroes of childhood comics inspiredus at early ages to live courageously for the
good of the world. Now as adults, there are
other superheroes we look up to.This is the vision of Focus magazine — to continue its mission to provide creativeand intriguing insight to the Baylor/
Waco volunteer and nonprot community.Individuals showing extraordinary effort toimprove our community have exciting stories
to tell like the comics we would eagerlydevour. What inspired them to do what theydo? What gives them strength? What can wedo to help their efforts? The answers to thesequestions are important to our community.Our modern-day heroes can be found inmany areas of interest. They could be the breakfast program volunteers who work 
extra early to feed the hungry. They could be
the principals who work tirelessly to inspirestudents in and out of the classroom. Theycould be the women reaching out to lives in
darkness. Waco and Central Texas are full of 
individuals dedicating their lives to othersand asking nothing for themselves. They are
our neighbors, our friends and our family.
They are the essence of Focus magazine’smission.This semester we invite you to dive intothe lives of these people and see what thiscommunity’s dedication and service can dofor the world. Heroes need reporters likeLois Lane and photographers like Peter Parker to share their stories and inspireothers worldwide.Let us be your guide into the incrediblelives that are making a difference.
Sincerely,
Jenna DeWitt and Lincoln Faulkner Editors
Special thanks to: Julie Freeman, Paul Carr, Mike Blackman, Dr. Allin Means, Dr. Clark Baker and the Baylor journalism and media arts department.
