School Days

Keeping with the theme of this month’s youth issue, we’ve done a little digging of our own to surface some classic photos of MB staffers and freelancers in their prime. Kids, these pictures are proof that it only gets better from here…

Was this photo taken in high school or yesterday? We can’t decide. St. Paul’s Episcopal School, 1996
