  • 2015 BuffaloHaltom High SchoolHaltom City, Texas

    Theme: "It is what it is"
    Adviser: Emily Arnold
    Editors: Giovanna Villalpando, Sarah Robinson
    Walsworth representative: Lisa Llewellyn - CJE
    Awards: NSPA Pacemaker Finalist

    2014-15 was a meaningful year for Haltom High. The school moved up a classification in Texas to 6A, now with more than 2,500 students. The school dealt with the death of a student in the fall. It wasn’t always easy. It was stressful. But the editors were clear that “like the lines of a zen garden in the sand, IT is all about accepting how things are in the moment.” The chronological Buffalo does that memorably, with outstanding photography and trendy design.

    Theme: "What now"
    Adviser: Britton Taylor
    Editor: Jessica Dehn
    Walsworth representatives: Missy Green, Adam Livesay, Tracy de la Feuilliez
    Awards: NSPA Pacemaker

    The 2015 Fusion editors explain in the opening that their theme of “What now” worked as “an expression” and “a taunt” as well as “a possibility” and “a challenge.” It ran the gamut, just like a typical school year at Hagerty High. The staff did an outstanding job covering its large school with lots of trends and feature stories that captured student life perfectly in this moment. Traditional spreads on events such as homecoming and clubs/sports are spiced up with sidebars using cutouts and given creative design treatments. A series of “Spotlight” pages are eye-catching for their use of great photos.

    In their colophon, editors Michael Bole and Zoey Robinson wrote that the 2015 Masterpiece staff “had so many different types of personalities to create our special family.” That Bak yearbook family created a truly special middle school book, bright and colorful with in-depth coverage that made liberal use of augmented reality on several spreads, using the Aurasma app to bring images to life with videos. A nice touch was getting students into the book through a “What do you think?” quote box in the student life and academics sections.

    Walsworth representative: Johnny Cole
    Awards: ACP Pacemaker

    The opening pages of the 2015 Petit Jean greet readers with a quote from Leonardo da Vinci, simply stating, “Realize that everything connects to everything else.” The quote carries a powerful message of connectivity through shared experiences on a college campus and through spirituality at this private university. It’s a message the Petit Jean staff used to tell their story. Each of the book’s traditional sections is introduced with a note from an editor, outlining the part of the story to come. As editor Shelby Daniel explains on the book’s closing pages, the 2015 Petit Jean should “make you want to extend your connections if you feel they do not reach quite far enough.”

    Awards: NSPA Pacemaker

    The yearbook staff was concerned that they were taking on more than they bargained for, but they were able to prove in their coverage that McKinney High is “More Than a School.” Despite the challenges of covering the numerous additions and changes to McKinney during the school year, such as more students following redrawn attendance zones, the staff was up to the task. With the changes in mind, the book unifies the theme and school by using the school’s colors on the cover. The introductory trifold is the first of many cool features that demonstrate why there is more to the 2015 Lion than meets the eye.

    Awards: CSPA Gold Crown

    As noted in the Theme Gallery, the 2015 Pride staff used a twist on the popular Humans of New York blog to fill their 384-page book with a massive amount of individual stories and photos chronicling the year. As editor Haewon Ma said in the colophon, the book was a “yearlong epic that can only compare to that of Gilgamesh.” But the staff’s ambition paid off with a masterpiece. Every spread in this landscape book shows great style and attention to detail, tempting the reader to take their time. A nice addition to the coverage was almost every spread making use of a student social media quote next to the folio.

The staff makes abundant use of fun, creative sidebars. Highlights included mods on the go-to drink from Starbucks for students, and another where teachers got to sketch what they thought common slang words meant.

    Change is unsettling, and the 2015 Lair staff addressed the changes at their school by embracing them with their theme, “Up in the air.” Using large, storytelling photos and in-depth stories and sidebars, the staff documented the confusion during distribution of MacBook Airs to every student. The staff also used the theme to cover other changes, such as 15 new teachers and cheerleaders earning the right to compete for the first time in three years. The book softens the effect of these changes with a linen cover with screened photos and a muted color palette that helps readers find stories in this 400-page book.

    “High school is all about the moments,” the editors say in the colophon. To highlight the personal and school-wide moments, the staff plays on their school name, using “That Boone Moment” but bolding the “one” in Boone to make the theme also say “That one moment.” The staff dug deep to do more than just cover events, but also to get individual perspectives. Stories and graphics with lots of quotes will help students remember many moments of the 2015 school year at Boone.

    Awards: CSPA Gold Crown

    The yearbook staff of the 2015 Tower understood their mission was to cover this school year. The seven words of opening copy flow across three spreads and are set in all caps in Metropolis font on campus photos. With those words, “We Know What We Are, But…” the staff uses great photography and tons of quotes from students to supply outstanding coverage. The dividers contain applicable famous quotes to keep the book moving. The closing, which ends the opening sentence, looks to the future: “Not What We May Be.”
