The Publisher’s Perspective – June 2024

Dear Readers,

June is a month of celebration! As we honor and celebrate our fathers and father figures, applaud the achievements of graduates, and embrace the arrival of summer, our hearts are filled with joy and anticipation for the months ahead!

This month, Hampton’s Menswear graces our cover—a haven for those who appreciate style. For those seeking inspiration for the special men in their lives, Hampton’s is the perfect starting point.

We’ve curated some fun ideas for you to explore for Father’s Day, check out page 36 for a little inspiration.

I’m thrilled to announce the debut of a new column, “Trackside Talks” by Clair Crow. Welcome to the team, Clair! Dive into the introduction to this exciting column and get to know Clair on page 14.

On page 18, don’t miss a heartfelt letter from Miss North Carolina for America, Jacklyn Drake. We’re excited to accompany her on this journey.

As we celebrate Father’s Day, my heart swells with both joy and longing. Happy Father’s Day to my dad in Heaven—we miss you so very much! To my stepdad, Charlie Schuler, thank you for being an incredible father figure in my life. And to my husband, Tim (aka Teej), you are my rock, my everything.

Here’s to the most amazing summer!

Keela
