2017-18 Yearbook

As the 2017-18 school year comes to a close, the yearbook staff just wrapped up the yearbook. The “Rise Up” themed book reached its final deadline with the newly revised pages sent out for printing last Friday.

The staff has worked hard all year to put together a set of memories of the school year, all while still having fun.

“I enjoy working with the other editors during lunch, we have a lot of fun and we make each other laugh a lot and it’s just a really good time when we are all together, never a dull moment,” copy editor Nichole Bresee said. “We have little odd traditions like playing tetris to de-stress, or saying joke prayers to Marteen, our lord and savior.”

As copy editor, Bresee was in charge of maintaining coverage and helping staff members find story angles, which gave her the opportunity to hear and record many moments in the book.

“This year has been full of so many amazing stories that is impossible to pick which one was my favorite to write, but I like to cover the ones that I didn’t expect; the ones that made me smile as wrote them,” Bresee said. “I liked the playoff story because I got to explore the emotional, family-like connection between the football boys. The academic competitions story was also the most unusual yet hilarious story I’ve ever written. I don’t want to give away spoilers, but I really recommend reading once the book comes out.”

The yearbook created a strong bond between the students who spent a whole year working on it together.

“The bond between the staff and our advisor, Ms. Rooney is amazing- she is just like another one of my friends,” managing editor Breianna Hasty said. “She helps us whenever we need it and she is always involved and ready to have fun. Also, the bond between the editors is really strong this year. We are all really excited and proud of what we have done here this year and can’t wait to share it with the rest of the student body.”

The yearbook set to come out to the student body right before the end of the school year in May.

“The yearbook has been an amazing experience and I am so happy that I got to be a part of it,” photo editor Alaina Dougall said. “I can’t wait until everyone sees the book!”
