Riverside High School’s yearbook, the Sakamow, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2016 Jostens Look Book, celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage. The Jostens Look Book is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, cool covers, dazzling 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 Riverside High School Sakamow was one of only 494 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000.
The 2015 Sakamow was created by editors Julie Chrisler and Kaitlyn Phillips with staff members Alexus Calhoun, Samantha Ladson, Meredith Reeves, Noah Satterfield, Chasity Taylor, Reagan Bell, Steven Cabezas, Abby Farr, Ashten Latta, Chelsea Mansel, Aubrey McGregor, Philip Pagliuca, and Carolyn Townsend under the direction of Katrina Hester, Riverside High School yearbook adviser.
“I am very proud of the effort and dedication displayed by the 2015 yearbook staff in receiving this honor. We underwent a year of transition, with a new adviser and a mostly new staff, and they worked very hard to meet their improvement goals for the year,” said adviser Katrina Hester.
The 2016 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 320-page 2016 Look Book.
