I've been taking and collecting
photos for some of these 2011 Seniors since they were in elementary. For others,
this senior group photo taken 10/29/2010
may be the first time they have been before my lens. By the time the 2011
grad pages (one for each graduate) go online at www.cvilleok.com on May 1,
2011, I will hopefully have a representative set of photos for each summarizing
their Collinsville school experience. In order for those pages to be the best
they can be, I need the help of each student, parent and as many Collinsville
merchant sponsors as possible over the next few months.
I received a list of 161
senior names yesterday (which I know by experience since 2004) will change
considerably before the final pages are updated after graduation in May 2011.
From students and parents
I need additional photos submitted to me (email@example.com)
that I wouldn't already have from CHS sports, band, or other activities which
you see updated daily on cvilleok. These photos can be of any (family friendly)
subject ...including work, hobby, car, pet, family, friends, favorite teacher,
church, scouts, ... etc. I don't have a set limit how many or when but lets
say any more than ~10 and you are likely wasting my time and yours ...and
the sooner I get them the more time I have to organize and edit them into
place. If you take additional "favorite" photos later, you can still
send them along. There are not even blank template pages yet as I am just
begining to get organized for this year's pages but as we get closer to May
you can view partially finished pages (on my computer only) by request.
For merchants, parents,
grandparents, aunts/uncles... etc: Congratulations ads info will be available
Note: These pages
have typically had photos of the student only ... but I'm always happy to
receive photos, art work, messages, etc created by the student also to improve
Note: I was late
to the yearbook (LifeTouch) photo day for seniors in September and was too
busy to attempt many individual photo today but am almost always willing to
take (free) photos of seniors for their pages. If you have senior photos made
elsewhere please send me copy of your favorite.
been on Facebook for about a year now and have been friended by a remarkable
number of CHS students. I don't ask to be friends, but accept when I recognize
a Collinsville student (or parent). I have been fasciniated by the variety
of photos that I have seen of (& by) many of you. I don't plan to "go
hunting" for Facebook photos but have seen a few that would be perfect
for your senior cvilleok page. I will let you send them to me directly instead
so you can select.
