JEA names winners of 2010 Yearbook Adviser of the Year program

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Late last week, the JEA announced the winners of this year’s Yearbook Adviser of the Year awards program.

All the winners could be found over in our News & Notes section. Sarah Nichols, the adviser from Whitney High School in Rocklin, Calif., was named the 2010 Yearbook Adviser of the Year.

The JEA Yearbook Adviser of the Year prize for Sarah Nichols was noteworthy, because it was the second such honor for her family. Sarah’s husband, Casey Nichols, previously won the 2004 Yearbook Adviser of the Year award.

Congratulations to Nichols and all the winners from the Yearbooks Blog.
