Cheers & Farewell

Just what does 15 years look like? It looks a lot—we hope—like the 180-plus pictures that appear on the preceding pages. It also looks like Kristy Sinclair, a sophomore at Northwest Christian Academy in Miami, Fla. Kristy appeared once before in PEOPLE, on page 39 of our first issue, at the age of 7 weeks and in the arms of Sen. Sam Ervin (Kristy's snap-happy father had asked Ervin to pose).

Fifteen years later, Kristy—and PEOPLE—are energetic teenagers, lively, alert and a little unpredictable. And if you think the past 15 years have been an adventure, remember this: Next year this magazine—and Kristy—will be old enough to drive.
