You won’t want to forget them at Blennerhassett Middle School

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

They’ve got a lot of fun, new teachers this year at Blennerhassett Middle School in Parkersburg, W.V., which is what prompted the production of a video to introduce them all at open house and then in turn promote yearbook sales.

The yearbook staff’s pitch with the video has been, “Would you want to forget these people?”

You can see the video below, then you can vote for Blennerhassett’s “Call Me Maybe” video over at Walsworth’s Facebook page by giving it a Like. The video contest runs until Nov. 19, and winners will be selected by a committee of judges based on the following criteria: message and appropriateness to theme, creativity, entertainment value, viral nature as determined by the number of video Likes on Facebook and technical prowess.
