If English teacher demands to find a synonym for "last" here, what will be it? "final"? Does "my final" sound natural here?


Supporting better communication isn’t just something that’s nice to do. It’s vital to ensure a better future for hu- manity. And it seems fitting that this issue’s theme should be my last, after 18 years on staff at Scientific American, the past 10 as its editor in chief. By the time you read this, I will be just start- ing my new role as dean of the College of Communication at Boston University, my alma mater.
