Journalism, yearbook efforts awarded

What do awards really mean? Are they just given to people who are better than others, or as a sign of recognition?

The yearbook staff and journalism team on campus received awards for their superior performances.

An All Valley Newspaper award was presented to the newspaper staff for their first three issues during the current school year. The Feather competes in the small school division with 300-1300 students.

?The team as a whole has consistently been rewarded over the years for their ability to interview, write, and edit,? Greg Stobbe, journalism adviser, said, “and this year is no exception. I appreciate their consistent work ethic and trust that they will continue to utilize these skills academic pursuits.?

Seniors Anne Hierholzer and Elise Aydelotte were given an honorable mention for previously written mailed in articles.

?The journalism team sent in an article I wrote to the competition,? Hierholzer said. ?I was honored for getting this award. I was surprised because I did not realized one of my articles was sent in. But I am happy with outcome.?

Anne has written for the newspaper staff for four years and Stobbe was not surprised she received an honorable mention.

“Anne has consistently written indepth articles and has taken her role as a reporter and most recently, editor-in-chief, very seriously,” Stobbe said. “It is no wonder a student of that quality is going on to university with a highly regarded reputation.”

The yearbook team was also awarded a superior for the 2003-04 yearbook. Molly Sargent, yearbook adviser, believes the reward alone does not prove the abilities of her staff.

?Our yearbook team is really good,? Sargent said. ?I do not need someone to tell me that they are good because I know they are.?

Although the yearbook received a superior rating, senior Danae Cook, yearbook editor, still believes they are able to reach higher standards.

?The yearbook staff did a great job last year, but it is always getting better,? Cook said. ?Our expectations for writers, captions and photos are high, but the staff surpasses them. Also, our yearbook this year will be an all color one.?
