Art focus: Brainonian.
Adviser nomination: "Melissa Morey is in her third year of yearbook. Between her experience and her bubbly personality, she was a shoo-in for the editor-in-chief position as selected by the staff last spring. She's been a good leader in every way. She never says no to a request. She's helpful and positive with our younger staff members. She acts on suggestions made about her own pages and she puts in extra hours as needed to ensure the success of the publication."
How do you make sure the yearbook will be a success: "I make sure all the pages, photos and stories and the follow-ups are done on time."
