A beautiful photo of Shorewood High School cross country team members silhouetted at sunset received a perfect score from the Washington School Public Relations Association (WSPRA) in its annual awards competition. WSPRA is the professional organization for K-12 communications in the state.

Paul Villanueva, Shorewood mathematics teacher, activities coordinator and coach, took the photo during a preseason camp on Whidbey Island at Camp Casey last summer.  

“It was the first evening of the team building camp,” Villanueva recalled. “We split our team up into teams to participate in mini-team competitions. Just as we brought the athletes outside, I noticed the sun was at the right angle while mixed in with a slightly elevated field. I asked a few athletes to go over and start jumping and this is one of the pictures that resulted in that moment. So glad that I saw and caught this.”

Shoreline Schools also received awards from WSPRA for the District Web site, redesigned this year by Brent Degenhardt, technical support manager and Webmaster; and for the 2012-13 District wall calendar designed by Craig Degginger, public information officer.
