2017 Neshonoc Yearbook Dedication Press Release

04/04/2017 11:02 am

West Salem High School’s 2017 Neshonoc yearbook dedication ceremony is set for Friday, May 19, at 7:00 pm at the Marie W. Heider Center for the Arts.


The event will reveal this year’s dedicatee, who, by tradition, is either a district employee or a community member selected by the Neshonoc’s senior editors from among a list of nominees who have made a positive impact on West Salem students. Great anticipation ordinarily precedes the event, for the name of the dedicatee is not divulged until the night of the presentation.


The program, about a half hour in length, will consist of speakers—students, colleagues, friends, and family—recognition of past dedicatees, introduction of the Neshonoc and journalism staffs.


After the ceremony, yearbooks will be distributed to those who have purchased their books in advance. A limited number of additional books will go on sale the following week.


A reception honoring the dedicatee, as well as former dedicatees and editors, will take place in the Heider Room following the program. Both the program and the reception are free and open to the public.
