The honor comes from the National Scholastic Press Association.
McLean High School's yearbook The Clan has been named a Pacemaker finalist for yearbooks with 289 - 336 pages. The editors of The Clan are Robin Bleiweis, Mara Corbett, Yasmine Panah, and Emily Winchester. Meghan Percival is the yearbook adviser. The Pacemaker Awards competition is a program of the National Scholastic Press Association. The Clan staff has to wait until April to find out if they won a Pacemaker award—the announcement will come at the Journalism Education Association (JEA)-NSPA Spring National High School Journalism Convention in San Francisco.
