Jacket Journal Secures Digital Dominance: Clinches Prestigious Site Excellence Award

In just a little over a year since our online paper went live, the Jacket Journal website has not only flourished but has now emerged as the epitome of online excellence, proudly securing the prestigious Site Excellence Award. This accolade is awarded to high school and college newspapers that exceed expectations, particularly in the realm of website design. Our dedicated staff, surpassing not just meeting but exceeding 18 stringent expectations, has propelled us to stand out among the 523 participating schools in the State of Ohio.

Remarkably, we stand as only the third school in the entire state to be honored with this distinction. The magnitude of this achievement cannot be overstated. Our students, each contributing significantly to this triumph, have demonstrated an unparalleled commitment to excellence. Every facet of our website, meticulously crafted and fine-tuned, reflects the collective effort of our talented students.

At the forefront of this success is senior Quinn Hoffman, whose design and layout have reshaped the landscape of our online paper. He has not only met but exceeded expectations, meticulously tweaking every element of the page. To say I am beyond excited for my students is an understatement – their dedication and creativity have truly set a new standard for excellence in digital journalism.

Over the past two weeks, our dedicated staff has undertaken the monumental task of placing captions on an astonishing 8,000 photos. This effort was not just about captioning; it was about justifying the sheer volume of visuals that our paper now holds. The truth is that our publication has evolved into the definitive source for capturing the moments of our students, making it the paper for our community.

I am profoundly honored and bursting with pride for each and every student who contributed to this remarkable feat. Their commitment and hard work have not only elevated our paper but have also solidified its standing as theĀ  visual chronicle of our vibrant student community. This achievement underscores the dedication of our team and reinforces the Jacket Journal’s role as the source of student imagery for our proud community.
