Utah school selling old yearbooks to raise money
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
Does your school have an archive of unsold yearbooks from past years just sitting around gathering dust? That seemed to be the case at Mountain Crest High School in Hyrum, Utah, so adviser Brent Jeppesen and the staff decided to make a little money off the old books.
The staff got the idea to sell the back copies of the yearbook, Cavalier, once they realized the school owned multiple copies from almost every year since Mountain Crest opened in 1983.
As Jeppesen explained to the local newspaper, every old book sold gives the yearbook program a chance to recoup money.
What kind of fund-raisers has your yearbook staff taken part in? Has your school ever sold past issues of the yearbook?
