Selected as one of 12 schools in the state for a yearbook recognition, the Loyalsock Township School Board honored its yearbook staff Wednesday night.
Brooke Beiter, English teacher and yearbook adviser, said that out of the approximately 12,000 schools that use publisher Jostens, Loyalsock Township was chosen as one of the best 400 and received the National Yearbook of Excellence recognition. The honor was chosen by making the yearbook meaningful to all students, having an affordable and attractive product, and having superb management by the staff.
Lydia Hall, a junior staff member, explained that each student was pictured in the yearbook at least three times as to represent the entire student body. The book also included an index, which allowed students and families to easily find the pages each student is featured.
"It has the page number that each student is on," Hall said.
Miah Dunkleberger, a junior staff member, said the theme of the past year was "A Diamond in the Rough." The staff used the theme to show how special the district is.
Although Mikaya Born, the senior editor in chief, was unable to be at the meeting, Beiter said she was key in creating such a great product.
Robert Grantier, superintendent, thanked the staff for their work and said how much he enjoys seeing it each year.
In other business, William Carlucci, board member, announced that the Lancer Foundation currently is seeking businesses to purchase large permanent advertisement signs to be hung around the football field.
