St. Thomas Aquinas Earns Jostens National Yearbook Design Recognition
Veritas yearbook featured in 2014 Jostens Look Book
(HAMMOND) – St. Thomas Aquinas Regional Catholic High School’s yearbook, Veritas, 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 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 Veritas yearbook was created by 2012-13 staff including editor-in-chief Katie Williams, under the direction of Michelle Chauvin, STA yearbook adviser.
“We are so excited and honored to have been included in Jostens 2014 Look Book,” said Chauvin. “The honors keep racking up for the 2013 staff, after already receiving the Jostens National Yearbook Award of Excellence. This is giving the 2014 staff big shoes to fill!”
The STAVeritas 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 advisers, 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.”
Ms. Chauvin and her yearbook staff received a copy of the 2014 Jostens Look Book and certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.
