Social studies teacher Christine Sauer nominated Harvey, an eighth-grader. Sauer wrote: “This is my first year having Sawyer as a student. I learned pretty quickly that he was going to be a positive asset in class.

“Sawyer displays all qualities that a student of the month should possess. He works hard to do well in class (and) is always working towards creating an inclusive classroom. Sawyer is someone other students like being around.


“An influential student in eighth grade, Sawyer influences in a positive manner. Sawyer actively participates in class, creates an inclusive environment, works hard and is friendly. When guest speakers come into the class he is a positive participant. He brings out the best in others.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
