Hoofprints, originally Hoofprint, was established in the founding year of Mira Costa in 1951 and was given its current name by Mary Jane Miller, class of 1953. Its very first Editor in Chief was a sophomore, Darlene Spencer. It has seen many advisers, editors, and changes throughout the year but one thing that hasn't changed is the integrity and professionalism of the staff and their ability to produce beautiful published works of art.
Hoofprints' students work tirelessly all year and dedicate sleepless nights and long weekends to preserve the history and memories of each passing year. Every person on staff has an important role to play. Photographers spend time with athletes and coaches, documenting special events, catching a snap shot of the Queen at Homecoming, and making visits to clubs and outstanding students. Writers have the difficult task of recording everything and anything that happens on campus- gathering quote after quote and writing a hit a story. Designers capture the spirit of the campus in this 430 plus page book. Creating layouts, working with artists, and setting copy and photos to make a memorable spread.
Without Hoofprints, the history of Mira Costa could be lost. Students age and box up their high school memories and store them in garages but one day they will look back on the yesteryears and think, "I'm so glad I bought a Hoofprints yearbook".
