Dedication to journalism comes first for Glendale yearbook staff

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

This must be the week for Walsworth yearbook staffs to get featured in the local newspaper!

A couple days ago here in the Blog, we made note of a nice article on the Terra Nova High staff out in California. Here’s another interesting feature – this one from the Springfield News-Leader about the yearbook staff at Glendale High School in Springfield, Mo.

The Glendale yearbook has been faring well in national contests and critiques, and adviser Lisa Wingo tells the newspaper the reasons are simple – the professionalism and dedication of the students.

“These kids don’t come across like high school kids when they are working,” said Wingo.
