So before his 400 classmates and the two thousand family and friends of the school community, Palo Alto High School conferred upon Wes the 2011 Viking Award. Now this award is NOT given out every year. It is at the discretion of the faculty and more often than not it is not given out. On average, it is awarded every ten years! The Award was presented by Wes's journalism teacher Mike McNulty, who read a veritable litany of four years of Wes' contributions to Paly staff, administration, students and the greater community. Mr. McNulty reported that the faculty and staff easily came to consensus about honoring Wes with the Viking Award, that the decision was"virtually unanimous".
We at the Media Center are extremely proud of Wes and congratulate him on being so recognized by his high school community... and if you are interested in learning about the award that Wes won last week, read on....

Well Wes, I think you can just stop now and relax and enjoy your summer. You have a few months until it's time to transform your college campus. We are sure going to miss you around here... but something tells us you'll be back. No one could give as much as you have to your town and not return to brighten its streets and avenues again!
