Michigan students covet JEA honor for their yearbook adviser
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
Earlier this month, Tim Morley was named one of the Distinguished Advisers when the JEA announced their annual individual honors for yearbook advisers. For Morley, the adviser at Inland Lake High School, Indian River, Mich., it was a special award to be sure.
As this article from the Petoskey News-Review in Petoskey, Mich., details, Morley’s students and school, which as recently as 2009 voted him “Teacher of the Year,” are also taking a great deal of pride in the JEA award.
One of Morley’s former editors who has now moved on to college, Emily Jones, told the newspaper that she learned many valuable lessons from Morley’s yearbook class – not just about journalism, but also about life.
“I can definitely say that my dreams and aspirations would not have been possible without the experience I received from yearbook,” Jones said.
