  • Student Showcase: It's not diamonds that are a girl's best friend

    By ALEXIS SKAGGS

    At 9, he was all I could think about. At 11, he was my first love. At 17, he was gone. Although Lex was not a person, he was more than just a horse.

    He was my best friend, my partner in crime and my protector. With him, I was invincible. From our first day together, even on the rocky days, Lexis taught me many lessons. Most importantly, he showed me the purest form of love.

    By CORTNI TROUBLEFIELD
