Amerson is not new to Leesville, only to the yearbook program. “I have been in Wake County for… 19 years,” she said. “I have been at Leesville for the last five years.”
Amerson went on to discuss how the class is run. “Everything is on the computer now,” she said. “But at my old school [Taipei American School], yearbook was not a class.”
Amerson has lofty expectations for the class. Said Amerson, “Our goal is to produce a high-quality yearbook this year.”
Kelsey Hounshell, a senior and member of the class, spoke about what she thinks of Mrs. Amerson. “I love Ms. Amerson. In yearbook, you have to be really organized.” Hounshell mentioned how Mrs. Amerson’s experience as an English teacher will help her assist the yearbook students in making corrections to the yearbook.
“She’s qualified for the job. Because of her English background, she won’t let little mistakes get through to the printed version. I think this is going to be a really good year,” said Hounshell.
Hopefully, with Mrs. Amerson in charge, the yearbook will once again be driven to success.
