Eisenhower earns Yearbook of Excellence Award

For the third year in a row, Eisenhower Middle High School has been awarded the National Yearbook Program of Excellence Award. The yearbook editors for this year were seniors Charleigh Smith and Jessie McCool. The middle level editor was William Acklin. The advisor for the Eisenhower yearbook was Jessica McElhaney, who has been the yearbook advisor for five years at Eisenhower.

Eisenhower is one of only 200 schools in the U.S. and one of only seven schools in Pennsylvania to be honored with this award from Jostens.

“Schools that continually strive to create a great yearbook for their students deserve to be recognized. We understand that a great yearbook program doesn’t just happen, and we’re dedicated to helping schools strengthen theirs,” said a Jostens spokesperson. The National Yearbook Program of Excellence Award has been created to recognize those who excel in the creation and distribution of their yearbook, and meet the following criteria: a meaningful book for all students; a book that means something to all students and includes a vast majority of the student body; a book in every student’s hands; and effective project management.

“Schools put so much time, effort and love into their yearbook,” Jostens explained. “We want to help ensure that as many students as possible get to enjoy the masterpiece that’s created.”
