For the student record search, I get it to work if the else statement in my function getStudent is removed.

I think it is because it continues the loop. It only shows the first record. If I try typing Trish or John or Jody first or second or whenever, the else statement processes instead.

You're right, and the "not found" behavior should only be done after the loop ends. If done inside the loop, only the first name (Dave) can ever be found.
