Current Episode

Jai Tanner’s yearbook career spans 21 years and three different states – and that’s not even counting her high school yearbook experience. She spent the first three quarters of her career in Texas and New Mexico. Her yearbook staff at Franklin High School in El Paso, Texas, was no stranger to Crowns and Pacemakers. Her move from the Southwest to the Pacific Northwest, from an urban high school to a rural high school, required Jai to adapt. She’s grown to love Yelm High School in Yelm, Washington, but it took some trial and error to create yearbooks that are right for her new community. Listen in to hear Jim ask Jai about her philosophy on life, as well as how she successfully navigated each school change.
