The Tiger Paw DVD supplement is a pacemaker award finalist in the digital yearbook category.

The 2011 Tiger Paw DVD video yearbook supplement has been recognized as a pacemaker award finalist by the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) in the digital yearbook category.

The pacemaker award is the highest honor a school is able to receive through the NSPA. Oakville High School is one of six schools around the country to have been recognized for this honor.

“It is great recognition for the work my students do,” said OHS journalism advisor Jeff Kuchno.

2011 OHS graduate Eric Lehr and OHS senior Ryan Huegerich are responsible for editing the digital yearbook supplement.

“It’s nice to know that I helped do something that is nationally recognized, but I couldn’t have done it without Eric,” said Huegerich.

This is the first time in school history that OHS has recived a pacemaker finalist award.

The winners of the pacemaker award will be announced at the national journalism convention in Seattle on Saturday, April 14.
