Jostens, the leading producer of yearbooks and student-created content, has recognized the North Carroll High School yearbook program as a 2015 Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence. This award recognizes engaging yearbooks that reflect a broad representation of the student body while helping students develop 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, and information and communication technologies (ICT) literacy.
The yearbook program at North Carroll High School is led by editor Shannon Oosterhous and business manager Scott Sainz, with key staff members Molly Walsch, Brennan Hare, Tenley Reeder, and Olivia Hare. Additional staff members include Taylor Sabol, Kyleigh Masteran, Lauren Weitzel, Mary Guest, Becky Martin, Noah Kline, Corinne O’Brien, Noelle DiTommasso, Lexi Richards, Taylor Connor, Kristin Nickoles, and Mallory MacLellan.
“I am so proud of these students! They have worked tirelessly on preparing and executing the ideas on these pages,” said North Carroll yearbook advisor Kristen Strumsky.
Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence Awards are presented twice a year for yearbooks delivered during the school year. The award was presented to the North Carroll yearbook program for achieving the defined criteria in each of three following categories: creating an inclusive yearbook, generating school engagement, and successfully managing the yearbook creation process.
The North Carroll yearbook program will receive a plaque to display in the yearbook area and a banner to display in the school so the entire school community will be aware of this outstanding achievement.
