Durango High celebrating 100 years of the yearbook

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Anniversary yearbooks can be a fun, yet challenging, task for a yearbook staff. What about a school celebrating its 100th anniversary?

As this article from the Durango Herald shows, the Toltec staff from Durango High School in Durango, Colo., has really gotten into the spirit of celebrating their school’s 100-year history.

They have gone through all their past editions of the Toltec and collected memories and stories from alumni to include in this year’s book, even going so far as to take over a school district office meeting room last week and inviting folks to come peruse through past editions of the yearbook.

Visitors who graduated from as far back as the 1930s stopped by to look through the books.
