Thank You's are in orderPosted Tuesday, September 28, 2010, at 7:01 PM
September...wow. What a long, hectic, stressful, and fun month it has been. With the help of the student council and Tiger Tribune staff, our school pulled off homecoming, and I managed to push out my first paper as editor-in-chief.
I'd like to thank a few community members for their help in everything I was responsible for.
First of all, Mr. Vogt, the P.E. teacher at East Elementary. Mr. Vogt kindly lent the senior class a parachute that we used to decorate the hallway with. We also had the opportunity to play with the parachute the day we took it down. We had a great time and the hall looked fabulous, mainly because of that contribution.
A man named Marcus, a professional illustrator, drew a few pictures for our hallway, including some great elephants and one of the great pieces in our hallway- the sword swallower. The students were really impressed with your work, and we can't begin to thank you enough.
Thank you, Natalie Rogers. Mrs. Rogers is our school resource officer, and she kindly got in touch with the city street department to get some cones for me to block tiger alley with.
Janet Waggoner, for giving me advice and showing me where to go and who to talk to so we could have a great parade.
Jeff Johnson, for e-mailing the staff about groups that wanted to be in the parade and for e-mailing the line-up to everyone.
Pam Chiarella, for listening to my rants, getting the supplies for spirit club to decorate the field, and for getting the spirit sticks.
Susan Martin, for listening to my rants, helping me layout what will hopefully be another award-winning paper, and for getting the students into shape when I felt overwhelmed.
Travis DeVore, for taking on the journalism program and pushing us to take it to the next level, and for working so hard all summer and these first months of school to get the online edition running smoothly.
To the entire Tribune staff, for writing so much that we had to hold stories for the next issue, and especially to two of you (you know who you are) for being so responsible amidst personal tragedies. Your commitment is inspiring and you'll never be able to imagine how much I appreciated it.
To the Mountain Home News for being so patient with us when we fell behind our deadline.
And last but not least, to my parents, for giving me good leadership advice and listening to my every little complaint about how stressed I was. I can't wait to show you my work.
The print edition of the Tiger Tribune will be available either Thursday or Monday to the student body of Mountain Home High School. They day we pass out the papers, the online reader will be available at tigertribune.org. We'd love it if you checked out the site and gave feedback through the comments. Watch what you say though- we review every comment before it is posted and we will block your IP address if you become a problem.
