For the journalism II staff, it has become a challenging situation to make a yearbook possible for the 2020-2021 school year with many events having restrictions. Sports and clubs have been pushed back, and some did not happen at all. From the beginning, as a class, we knew we were trying to make the best out of what we had. This means we had to get creative and think about what we can really put in the yearbook, and still make it possible and encourage other students to purchase one.
“It has certainly been difficult to come up with ideas for spreads and things like that, but we work hard to make sure we produce a good product that people want to buy,” senior Emily Mullins said.
Some students may not decide to buy one because they think it would be difficult to put it together because of the pandemic, but we had to think deep down what we can add to fit the circumstances. As the year goes on, we continue to work as a team and help one another come up with ideas. Whether that is helping each other come up with story ideas to keep our website up to date, getting coverage for sports or events, and thinking of creative spreads that we can use in the yearbook.
“This year, our yearbook class has definitely had to go the extra mile with coverage due to things being shut down and restricted by COVID. I think we definitely found ways to get more creative than usual, coming up with unique spreads and stories to fit in with the current situation.” senior Zoey Carter said.
