An Unusual Year

Congrats to the 2020-2021 Minnehaha Academy Yearbook staff! Quill & Scroll honored the team with eight awards this year, the most we've seen in recent history. Two notable mentions:

1. Lily McClelland is the first MA student to place first in the nation twice.

2. Many of these awards have individual names, but this project was a team effort and each page included input from multiple team members. This is truly a team honor!

Here are those awards:
