Gonzaga Leadership Award 2014 (Yearbook Publication) (Presenter: Would Mr. Vaters come forward to present the award) One of the many traditions at Gonzaga is the publication of our annual yearbook. This year will be no different from any other in that regard. The yearbook, many of you will come to realize (if you don’t already), is a priceless collection of the memories of your high school lives. While many of us appreciate the product that is the yearbook, we do not often take the time to recognize the production effort behind it. This year, while there is a great team involved, one student in particular has taken it upon them self to see your yearbook creation through from beginning to end. Their effort has been tireless, dedicated, consistent and innovative.
For that she deserves your recognition. This year’s recipient of the Gonzaga Leadership Award (Yearbook Publication) is Sarah Veber.
