NeXt section will cease to publish, correspondents remember high school section

NeXt, The Buffalo News' youth section that began publication in 1995, published its last issue Thursday with a farewell "Thanks for the Memories" page of several current and former NeXt teen correspondents offering their thoughts on what NeXt has meant to them.

The section, under editor Susan LoTempio, began as a 12-page tabloid aimed at teens with some pages devoted to content for younger kids. The section was designed first by News designer Terry Lew and then by Christina Visco, and the articles were a mix of work by News staffers and teen correspondents recruited from area high schools.

NeXt won awards for content and design in several competitions of the once-thriving Youth Editors Association, and many former correspondents have gone on to distinguish themselves in journalism and other fields.

After the final edition of NeXt was published Thursday, many former NeXt correspondents shared memories of writing for NeXt on social media.

If you have fond memories of reading or writing for the NeXt section, share your memories in the comment section.
