Virginia advisers say yearbooks here to stay

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Take a look at this article from the Daily Press in Newport News, Va., and check out the glowing things these advisers have to say about yearbooks.

Particularly strong stuff from Tricia Rilee of Gloucester High School, who says she hears from students at her school, “I want my yearbook!”

The article also quotes Ann Stephens, a spokesperson for the Hampton City Schools, indicating that yearbooks are still very important for their high schools and requests from alumni for old books continue to flood in each year.
