Walsworth gets into yearbook spirit with old photos at annual meeting

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Walsworth Publishing held its annual International Sales Meeting last week in Tucson, Ariz., and the 175 folks in attendance at the event got into the yearbook spirit on the opening night.

Walsworth yearbook rep Missy Green contributed an old yearbook photo to be used as part of a contest at the company's sales meeting last week.

The company gathered up old senior yearbook portraits for those in attendance and put them on display at the opening dinner. A contest was held to see who could identify the most photos correctly.

In addition, the Walsworth reps dressed up in the decade they graduated from high school. A pretty cool way to start the new year and show off the company’s love for the yearbook business.
