Waccamaw High School’s yearbook, It’s All in the Lyrics, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2014 Jostens Look Book, celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage.
The 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 annual 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 It’s All in the Lyrics was created by Mattie Wyndham (editor-in-chief), Randi Johnson (assistant editor), Murielle Miller (business manager), Catherine Lowe (photo editor), Sarah Hutto (layout editor), Amanda Walker (people editor), Taylor Cox (sports editor), Cacky Lindsay, Christine Humowitz, Bronte Rapps, Caroline Lalla, Matt Lee, Hannah Wolf, DeQuan Funny, Hunter King, Sonia Wilkoszewski, Libby Taylor, Betsy Edwards, Kaila Bess, and Paige Hutchinson under the direction of Briael Chadwell, Waccamaw High School yearbook advisor.
“This is a great accomplishment for Waccamaw High School and its hardworking yearbook staff. I couldn’t be prouder of these wonderful students. This is the first time in Waccamaw history, and they should be very proud of their accomplishment,” Chadwell said.
The Waccamaw High School yearbook was one of only 426 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. The 2014 panel of judges, comprised of nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award-winning yearbook advisors, selected the best examples of yearbook spreads and covers to make up the 352-page 2014 Look Book.
“Yearbooks are unique, limited edition books created by students to capture the stories and events for all of the school’s students and Jostens is proud to celebrate the yearbook tradition and the 426 yearbooks selected for the 2014 Jostens Look Book, said John Dalke, editor. “Today’s yearbooks are very sophisticated in terms of visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured.”
Chadwell and her yearbook staff received a copy of the 2014 Jostens Look Book and certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.
