2010 CHS Graduate Pages In Progress
I get "senioritis" earlier than most as I spend a fair portion of my year working on the annual pages (one for each CHS senior). I've made good progress so far (through the slow news Christmas & New Years holiday) building the template pages and just beginning to plug in photos from my archives. I am now ready to request (again) submitted photos from the 2010 senior. Please email a few photos for your page to The pages won't be online for the public until (hopefully) May 1st, 2010 but I welcome seniors to review their in-progress pages (on my laptop) when I'm available at CHS or at the Newspaper Museum in the next few months. The pages are free to the students but I welcome business and personal ads to help pay for this mammoth effort. -- Ted Wright (12/30/2009)
Jayce Crowder (2010 Senior, center holding the fish) provided this photo for his page which will go online (on at May 1, 2010. Jared Crowder (CHS 2009, left) already has his page online.
Sample Previous Coverage:
Note: This may seem early to be asking for theses photos but I work on the pages all-year and have received only two submittals so far (Jayce Crowder & Delani Miller) and if most wait till the last month they won't all get finished. -- Ted 12/30/2009
