Summer yearbook camp is all about progress

Written by Susan Massy

It’s always amazing to me to watch the progress that yearbook kids make during a summer workshop.

We instructors were pretty honest with our opinions of the themes presented to us this weekend at the Sonoma, Calif., yearbook camp. What I saw the various staffs working on today was an incredible improvement.

I ♥ yearbook nerds.
