Prom, Senior Dinner Party, Homecoming week and Frost Fest. Those are just some of the events that the yearbook covers.
The yearbook covers everything, from big things like the spring play, to small unplanned things like a car fire after school.
One of the current editors-in-chief, Delynn Harmon, cannot wait for the rest of the student body to see what the yearbook staff has done.
“I am so excited to see how much work we put into it. I think all year people have heard us talk about it, about “Our Best Year,” but I do not think they truly understand that we were working on this every single day, in between every single class, every editor I know has just been pouring their heart and soul into this,” said Harmon.
The theme of this year’s book is “Our Best Year” the current editors wanted students to be able to look at the book at any point and think “yeah, that was my best year,” The book will be full of memories and amazing pictures.
The editors wanted everyone to feel apart and be involved in the book. Every student is in the book at least three times, and they wanted those three times to count.
“I want everyone to look at the yearbook and feel like they were a part of it. And all the editors chimed in and built off of the idea of it does not matter what grade you are in, it does not matter how involved you were, it does not matter what you were doing at Lebanon High School, you are going to be able to look at the writing we did, the photography that we did, and just truly think ‘that was my best year,” said Harmon.
Making a yearbook is not an easy task, you have to have every student covered, design layouts, meet deadlines and make sure you cover everything that happens, even after that book is finished. When one yearbook is finished in March, another one is just beginning.
For reporter Grace Duerksen, she has been learning the skills and techniques needed for making a great yearbook. Duerksen will be taking over as one of the editors-in-chief next year, and is planning next years book as well.
“I am most excited for people to see everything that we covered because I really feel like with everything that happened in Lebanon this year the reporters and editors really hopped on it,” said Duerksen.
Duerksen knows how important it is to always be ready to cover something that happens at LHS, no matter how big or small.
“Like Kaz always says, “if it is not in the yearbook then it did not happen,’ so that is one of the most important things,” said Duerksen.
The year may seem like it flies by in the blink of an eye, but the yearbook captures every moment for students to look back on.
The yearbook will be distributed in May, and the students at Lebanon High School will be able to look back at the whole year and realize it was their best year. Yearbooks are selling fast, but you can still purchase one! There are currently only 50 books left to purchase.
