The Walsworth Yearbooks Adviser Academy will take place July 11-13 in Kansas City, and will once again provide advisers with an amazing opportunity to get their 2017 school year off to the right start.

The Academy comes with three full days of specialized classes for both new and experienced advisers, as well as the chance to meet and brainstorm with a network of advisers from across the country.

An optional fourth day of the Academy will take place on July 14, giving advisers a chance to take a plant tour in Marceline and Brookfield or attend advanced tech training covering Online Design and Photoshop.

Walsworth Yearbooks Journalism Specialist Mike Taylor will present general sessions, and the award-winning track instructors will be:
