   The 2016-2017 yearbook staff have been working tirelessly to make sure that the yearbook is the best that it can possibly be, and the whole yearbook is due on Friday, March 24.

   According to yearbook advisor Jessica Beste, the pages that have been published have been high quality, and reflect the creativity of the staff.

  “The deadlines through Balfour are very specific. The completed book (without the spring supplement) must be completed by the middle of March to ensure the May delivery,” said Beste. “Thus far, I am so pleased with the content the current staff is able to create. Their creativity is evident through layout, design, photography and reaching out to various students to interview.”

Seniors Rachel Marshner and Ashley Bryan are just two of many staff members who work together to create the yearbook.

  One new change to the yearbook this year is the addition of senior quotes or a personal memory. The class of 2017 was able to submit their memory or quote on Google Classroom, and the quote will be included under their name in the yearbook.

  Senior Brittany Roberts was excited to include a quote in the yearbook because it is a way to remember her fellow classmates, and it allows the senior section of the yearbook to be more personal.

   “I think that the addition of senior quotes to the yearbook is really cool. It gives us all a chance to leave a little bit of a ‘legacy’ behind to look back on when we’re older,” said Roberts.  

  For each page, the yearbook staff members take pictures, interview students and design the layout of the page to match the theme of the yearbook. According to Beste, this year’s staff has gone above her expectations and worked together to create a yearbook that is unlike any previous ones.

  “This “club” is a different type of creative. It allows for a diverse group of seniors to come together to work on a published product that will be the center for the events that occur during their senior year. They are motivated, driven and share a clear passion as to how the yearbook is to be presented. The opportunity

to see the greatness come together to create a product that is the symbol of the school and community is an honor and I am surrounded by such a fantastic group of students who share the same vision and passion toward our school’s yearbook,” said Beste. “This year’s staff has gone above and beyond to ensure excellence and equally present each club’s, sports, and academic venture. I could not be more thrilled with the progress we are making as we work as a class, team, and as one.”

 

  Senior Isabel Barbera enjoys being on the yearbook staff because she is able to be apart of something big that will be looked at by students for years to come.

  “I feel like I’m doing a lot for the school, just by working on the yearbook. I like…interviewing people and taking pictures [for the pages]. I like the feeling of being included in something big,” said Barbera.

  After the final yearbook is published on March 24, the staff will be working on the spring supplement, which will include events such as prom, Shrek the Musical and spring sports.
