As we quickly come upon the end of another school year, many of you are eager to celebrate the educational accomplishments of those who have recently graduated and begin your summer vacations. But let us not forget those who still have yet to graduate. They, too, have worked hard to maintain their grades and make great strides toward that one special day when they will walk across the stage to get their diplomas and begin another chapter of their lives.
With that in mind, we here at the Navajo-Hopi Observer would like to encourage all middle schools and high schools within our readership area to submit their honor roll listings to us for publication in our June 17 issue. Because we realize that graduations have been keeping many schools busy, we have extended our submission deadline to 5 p.m. on Friday, June 12 in order to afford more schools the opportunity to submit their honor roll listings to us.
As our loyal readers may be aware, we have been publishing the Honor Pages in our paper for a number of years now to give recognition to local and reservation-area middle school and high school students who have made the honor roll. We are continuing to provide this service to our readers so that family members who see their student's name in print will be proud of them and likely to encourage their students to do better.
Nothing beats being recognized for your efforts. Students should always remember that continuing your education is always your best possible option in today's technologically advanced world. Nothing should discourage you from going to college and obtaining a degree in whatever field you choose so that you can return home and contribute to your particular community.
So, if your school has not yet submitted their honor roll listings, please encourage them to do so. Honor rolls may be easily submitted by e-mail as a Microsoft Excel database or Microsoft Word document or it can also be faxed. Our fax number is (928) 226-1115 and our e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you should have any questions about submitting honor rolls or need additional information, call the Editorial desk toll free at 1-877-627-3787, ext. 5 or e-mail email@example.com.
