Craig Strever - February Above & Beyond Winner


                                                          A large high school is a very busy place.  So many students, staff, programs and events. Lots of activities going on morning, noon and night. Craig Strever has been capturing those activities with his camera for seven years at Topeka high School.  “Craig has provided hours and hours of unselfish time supporting our programs at Topeka High.  His willingness to not only photograph athletic events, but to provide video and still photography for our band program is amazing,” said Topeka High Band Director Steve Holloman, who nominated Craig for the Above and Beyond Award.

 One parent said, “Many of our students would not have their high school memories captured forever it if was not for Mr. Strever.  He has continued attending and photographing our events even after his kids have graduated.”  Holloman added that Craig Strever is a very gracious man and a tremendous advocate for this fine school.

When asked why he likes doing this, Craig says he just enjoys taking pictures of the kids.  Whether it be a sporting or band event or even graduation, Crags wants to take pictures of any events that the kids will allow him to attend.  But when it comes to having his picture taken, he says he likes being behind the camera.

If you know of a staff member, parent or volunteer who goes above and beyond to help our students and our schools, nominate them for the monthly Above & Beyond Award.  You can find the nomination form on the school district website under staff/forms for staff/district program forms/Above & Beyond.
