Graduate Shout-Outs

Dear Senior Parents/Guardians:

The end of your child’s high school career is near! We know you have many different ways to commemorate the occasion, but we’d like to offer another possibility.

The staff of the student newspaper, The WA Ghostwriter, invites you to purchase a graduation shout-out for your son or daughter.  We publish a printed June edition of the newspaper that is distributed at graduation. Here is an example of an edition:

Since it features a list of the graduates’ college destinations, it tends to be a hot commodity!

We are selling four different shout-out spaces this year.

Deadline for submitting all materials and payment: April 2, 2021

The Ghostwriter staff will design your shout-out at no additional cost!

Photos that work well: senior portraits (that you have a release for), baby pictures, candids, close up and clear photos

Photos that do not work well: smart phone photos, blurry or unfocused photos

Message example: “We are so proud of you Sam!  We know you will do well in college and succeed at UConn!  We hope you always stay true to yourself and follow your dreams!  Love, Mom and Dad”

If you would like to purchase a shout-out, please fill out the Google form here: SENIOR GRADUATION FORM
