[lwegallery] John Cooper Elias, Agromeck yearbook editor: Michele had a tough task this year as the yearbook photo editor, but she did a great job. She managed the photo staff all year, and she helped us produce a high-quality product that we are all proud of. The most impressive thing about Michele was that while she had to deal with managing the photo staff she continued to grow as a photographer and shoot some of the best pictures I have ever seen from her during this year.
