MCHS yearbook — compiled by 16 students — arriving soon

Casey Kilpatrick, yearbook advisor at Moffat County High School, said the 2010-2011 yearbook will be available on May 19.

It is an event that spurs such intense excitement among students, the staff has rearranged the school schedule to accommodate it.

“We have a special schedule that day where students get their yearbooks, and they have about a half an hour to run around the school like crazy and get as many people to sign their books as they can,” Kilpatrick said. “It’s pretty chaotic. It’s wild.”

This year, 16 students spent an estimated 2,000 man-hours compiling the book, which features color photos taken by the yearbook staff, MCHS faculty and other students.

Kilpatrick said the staff does good work and was recognized for their efforts last year. Portions of the 2009-2010 yearbook were been featured in a book, Kilpatrick said.

“Our publishing company, Walsworth — one of the largest yearbook publishers in the country — publishes a book every year called ‘Possibilities,’” Kilpatrick said. “It showcases the best of the best — things that they noticed as they were printing yearbooks.

“We had some spreads that were featured in there.”

Kilpatrick said this year the yearbook staff will submit its work to the Columbia Scholastic Press Association for judging.

In the meantime, Kilpatrick offered Craig Daily Press a glimpse of what is to come by delivering the photos featured on this page.
