Student Record Search Challenge Solution

My solution builds upon code added by Chase Frankenfeld (specifically, notifying the user if they've already searched for a name).

I added the ability for the user to receive notice if they perform a duplicate search, or if they enter a name NOT in our object (our list of student names).

I also added a small conditional to make sure we don't see duplicate info in the DOM. For instance, if "Alex" is in our object, and they search for "Alex" three times, it will only show once in the DOM (in the search results).

I'm sure this could be edited down, as I'm looping through the object TWICE, to do two different things.
