HIGHLIGHTS FROMTHISMONTH

FROMLEANNE: The results of the 2020 census reveal that Richardson has grown by more than 20% in population since 2010, and the racial and ethnic breakdown of the city’s residents has shifted. This month’s front-page story explores ways we can continue to support Richardson’s growing population as it becomes more of a melting pot. Leanne Libby, GENERALMANAGER

FROMOLIVIA: Choosing a preschool can be overwhelming, especially in Richardson, where there are so many options. When I tried to nd the best t for my daughter three years ago, there was nowhere I could go to learn about the schools near me. Our inaugural Preschool Guide (see Page 10) provides a detailed list of Richardson facilities. We hope this guide helps parents make this important life decision. Olivia Lueckemeyer, SENIOREDITOR

Our purpose is to be a light for our readers, customers, partners and each other.
