Help with the challenge

var message = ''; var student; var search;

function print(message) { var outputDiv = document.getElementById('output'); outputDiv.innerHTML = message; }

function getReport( student ){ var report = '<h2>Student: ' + student.name + '</h2>'; report += '<p>Track: ' + student.track + '</p>'; report += '<p>Points: ' + student.points + '</p>'; report += '<p>Achievements: ' + student.achievements + '</p>'; return report; }


search = prompt("Search for a student by name or type 'quit' to exit"); console.log(search);

if( search === null || search.toLowerCase() === 'quit' ){ break; } else { for (var i = 0; i < students.length; i += 1) { student = students[i]; if( search.toLowerCase() === student.name.toLowerCase() ) { console.log("Matched"); message += getReport( student ); print(message); } else { print("<h2>There is no student by that name</h2>"); } }
} message = ''; }

Why does this code only show Jody's results although the search is matching in console? Please kindly help.
