Adviser nomination: “Bella is consistently working towards every deadline and does so with a positive attitude. She also spreads an overall community throughout the yearbook staff,” adviser Rick Jensen said.

Artist most admired? I have loved Moriah Elizabeth for what seems like forever, she uses lots of bright colors and different mediums, it’s really fun to look at.

Why did you join Brainonian? Honestly, I’m not really sure why I joined. I got an email for an informational yearbook Google meet, and I basically said “Sure, I’m not busy, why not?” so I went and it seemed fun so I applied.

Talk about your role on the yearbook staff: I take photos for events, I put together pages, and I try to help others if and when I can.

What excites you about being in yearbook? I love putting pages together, the whole process is super fun and it’s like a puzzle trying to figure out what photos should go where. You also get to see who’s in what activities, it’s really fun to find out what my classmates do in their free time.

How is the yearbook coming so far? It’s really good! All of our fall pages are coming together!

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at www.brainerddispatch.com. News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
