Red Mountain High School’s Pinnacle yearbook has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2015 Jostens Look Book, celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage according to a press release.
The Jostens Look Book is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, covers, designs, relevant coverage, storytelling copy and action-packed photography. Along with design excellence, the annually published Look Book honors the important role well-crafted yearbooks play in helping schools chronicle the experiences, stories and achievements most relevant to students and that academic year.
The Pinnacle yearbook was created by editors-in chief Rebecca Clark and Sarah Kocher under the direction of Jan Saquella, Red Mountain High School yearbook adviser.
“I’m so glad we made it in the 2015 Jostens Look Book because the staff put in a lot of hard work and determination to last year’s annual,” Miss Kocher said. “It’s such an honor to be featured in a publication of this caliber with so many other fabulous yearbooks.”
The Red Mountain High School Pinnacle yearbook was one of only 476 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000, according to the release. The 2015 panel of judges, comprised of nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award-winning yearbook advisers, selected the best examples of yearbook spreads and covers to make up the 344-page 2015 Look Book.
Ms. Saquella and her yearbook staff received a copy of the 2015 Jostens Look Book and certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.
The Jostens Look Book is a must-have resource for yearbook advisers and staffs seeking creative design and coverage ideas, trends and inspiration. The Look Book complements www.YearbookAvenue.com and www.facebook.com/JostensAdviserandStaff, Jostens online destinations for yearbook creation ideas.
