Hinsdale Central brings home CSPA Crown

Working with Mary paid off for the staff of Hinsdale Central High School when they won a CSPA Silver Crown this past year.

"Students respect Mary — they look up to her, they seek her input, they become better people, and better leaders and thinkers because of her ability to empower them and to hold them responsible," said Erin Palmer, Hinsdale Central adviser. "Her willingness to go to such great lengths for students and for the book speaks of her sheer dedication as well as her ability to coordinate and implement plans in an efficient, organized manner."

What People Are Saying...

I met Mary as a first-year teacher and yearbook adviser. At that time, she empathized with my struggles as a new teacher and has continued to have a keen awareness of what teachers need to produce excellent yearbooks, run an effective club, and manage finances on top of the everyday work of a school day. We feel extremely fortunate to be paired with Mary Slater and Walsworth from the beginning.

Mary has provided me with direct customer support for the 10 years I have been advising two different schools’ yearbooks. Due to her superior customer service, but also the overall Walsworth experience with both software as well as support from the production facility in Missouri, I cannot speak more highly about the success we have experienced with Walsworth.
