Arizona school enjoys celebrating 100 years of yearbooks

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The yearbook staff at Prescott High School in Prescott, Ariz., got to produce a special, 100th anniversary edition of their school’s yearbook this year and the students came away from the experience realizing they were part of something special.

Phoenix’s ABC-15 recently did a TV feature on the staff and all the memories they uncovered as part of the 100-year celebration.

As staff member Rickie Betancis told ABC15.com, “It’s gonna touch everyone that has graduated before. The past 100 years and those yet to come because in 100 years they are going to look back at our book.”
