National Recognition for Artists

The artistic creations of Ward Melville High School’s 2016 yearbook staff earned national attention, as two students were recently honored for a design layout they created for the school’s book of memories.

Senior Lauren Berlinghof and graduate Fangrui Tong were named finalists in the National Scholastic Press Association Yearbook Design of the Year Contest for their design spread “Green or Gold.” Contest winners will be announced in November at the National High School Journalism Convention.
