Jostens, the leading producer of yearbooks and student-created content, recently announced that Trinity Hall’s yearbook program has achieved the Jostens 2021 National Yearbook Program of Excellence award at the Bronze Level. The National Yearbook Program of Excellence 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 2020 award-winning yearbook program was led by editors Maggie Ward (class of 2020) and Emma Bradley (class of 2021) under the direction of faculty advisers Cathryn Danielczyk and Brittany Orrico. The “Roaring Twenties” theme paid tribute to the class of 2020 and commemorated a historic time period in which women found their voices, empowered themselves, and flourished.
“Our yearbook staff and editors worked hard to ensure that the 2020 yearbook was completed on time and that our pivot to virtual learning was documented for history,” shared Mrs. Orrico and Mrs. Danielczyk. “To do so, they met virtually several times to ensure that the pandemic would be included in a sensitive but honest way, and they chose to emphasize the ways our student body and faculty persevered through an unprecedented challenge. We are so proud of the book they created.”
