Walsworth hosts yearbook advisers at Show-Me Seminar

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Walsworth hosted a dozen yearbook advisers in Kansas City last week for a new event called the Show-Me Seminar.

During the two-day seminar, the advisers toured the Walsworth printing facilities in Marceline and Brookfield, Mo., and also attended sessions on marketing, InDesign, Photoshop and staff motivation.

“All the Walsworth employees on the Plant Tour were enthusiastic and provided us with a great learning experience,” said Mary Rowland, the yearbook adviser at Bainbridge High School in Bainbridge Island, Wash. “It was also very valuable to learn how Walsworth’s online sales program and customized marketing can help our yearbook program.”
