Yellow Vest Award


Craig Swanson, the newly anointed principal of Charles A Sprague High School in Oregon’s Capitol City of Salem, announced that each Friday of the school year a faculty member will pass on the infamous Yellow Vest to a teacher that “shows the Sprague Spirit in all aspects of their duties as a Sprague faculty member.” Principal Swanson stated that it is his "hope each teacher will recognize one another as a model of the Sprague Heart that I know each of us has inside our soul.” Mr. Swanson indicated that this will be a difficult task for the previously awarded teacher to pass the vest on and that in the event of a tie he will give deference to the individual that “lives to carry the TORCH and wear the ORANGE.”
