Cleveland-area newspaper has some fun with old yearbooks

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The News-Herald, a daily newspaper in suburban Cleveland, recently showed its news staff how much fun you can have with old yearbooks.

On their website, the paper created a feature called “A look back…” and posted old yearbook images of a few “unlucky” staffers.

To continue the fun, they even asked who the readers wanted to see next. Have any of your old classmates gone on to a successful career in the news business?
