Submitting College News -- The Tallmadge Express recognizes college students who achieve academic status via the dean's list, president's roll and honorary clubs. We do not print names of social fraternity pledges. We also print the names of graduates, but we do not acknowledge college acceptance -- except into military schools. All such news is primarily sent to the paper from the student's school. However, parents or students may submit news, with proper documentation -- a copy of grades or letter of commendation -- from the school. The Tallmadge Express asks parents and students to check with the school before submitting information to avoid duplication.
