Phillips Exeter editors celebrate 2012 yearbook with trip to Walsworth plant

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

It’s been quite a year for the 2012 yearbook staff at Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, N.H.

The school’s 2012 PEAN yearbook was recently named a Walsworth Gallery of Excellence winner. Each year a small percentage of Walsworth yearbooks get recognized in the Gallery, which honors comprehensive coverage, innovative design and superior copy and photography.

This year’s book was recently featured in an article on the Phillips Exeter school website, which offered some insight into the PEAN’s 2012 theme.

To celebrate the completion and arrival of this year’s book, Phillips Exeter advisers Evelyn Christoph and Joe Wolfson, along with editors Caitlin Foster and Shinri Kamei, traveled to the Walsworth plant facilities in Brookfield and Marceline, Mo., to watch the final pages come off the press.

Congratulations to the Phillips Exeter staff on a great year!
