To be considered for the award, the yearbook staff is required to complete the yearbook on deadline, sell the yearbook to at least 70% of the student body, and ensure that every student is pictured in the yearbook at least three times. From the 17,000 schools nationwide that partner with Josten’s to publish a yearbook, only 450 yearbook teams received the award.
Sacred Heart’s student yearbook staff, under the direction of faculty member, Nikki Howell, was among the two percent of schools nationwide to receive the award. This was Howell’s first year teaching the desktop publishing class.
“We weren’t aware there was an award,” said Howell, “We simply set out to create a yearbook our school family would be proud of.”
Howell says plans for the 2018-2019 yearbooks include featuring 100% of Sacred Heart’s student body in at least five photos, not including team and class pictures.
“Our student body keeps us on our toes because they create photo-worthy moments on a daily basis. It’s still early in the year, but I can already tell that we have another great yearbook in the works.”
