VAHS Yearbook: Behind the Scenes

Staff Writer, Camryn Dunn

Who could possibly be thinking about the Voyager Academy High School 2017-2018 yearbook? Well students need to start placing orders sometime soon. Yearbooks are now on sale for only $55. However, starting September 29th the price is going up to $60. The price will continue to rise throughout the school year. This year the yearbook staff has decided to make the theme “Behind the Scenes.” Their goal is to take students, staff, as well as families behind the scenes of a small school. This is unlike the previous yearbook staff members.

This year, the staff has really taken on social media marketing. From Instagram and Twitter accounts, to their own email where students are encouraged to send in photos that they would like to be included in the yearbook. This year the staff has set many sales goals. New teacher Mrs. Kreisman is taking over for Mrs. Deans, not only teaching yearbook, but also teaching marketing. Her plan is to really teach the yearbook staff how to properly and effectively market the yearbook.

Creative efforts of marketing have already happened. Last week, the yearbook class constructed fake parking tickets and place them on students windshields. The tickets included information on how much the yearbook was and also where to buy it. The yearbook and marketing classes are also working together to film a commercial that will be shown to not only students and faculty, but families as well on exhibition night. The commercial will be advertising the yearbook for this year and giving information on how/where you can purchase one.

Senior, Taliek Pratt in charge of sports coverage said, “This year in yearbook the students really have a say. We love pitching ideas to each other and giving each other feedback on how to be better. I’m excited that I can cover the Varsity basketball team as well as other sports this year.” Senior, Diamond Champion the member on the yearbook staff in charge of marketing stated “This is my first year taking yearbook and what I really like about it is how Mrs. K lets us really take charge in our roles that were assigned. She’s gives us freedom and responsibility which is cool.” The yearbook this year is going to be different compared to previous years with the unique theme, so make sure you buy yours now while it is on sale!
