Last year’s yearbook, the Dynasty, themed “Some things never change” was recognized in the 2022 Jostens’ Look Book April 5.
“Way to go, Mrs. Thedford and team,” Assistant Principal Angela Arp said. “As always, they produce an amazing yearbook that is definitely one to set the standard for others to look to and see how it’s done.”
The book was one of 458 selected from between 1,000 and 2,000 books that were submitted for consideration by a team of journalism experts.
“Everyone at Jostens is proud to have played a part in producing your outstanding yearbook,” Jostens representative Tread Sheffield said. “We celebrate your success.” Of the 14 yearbooks produced since the school’s opening, the yearbook program has been featured 12 times.
“It is an honor because we are compared to books across the nation and selected from two thousand,” adviser Mrs. Casi Thedford said.

Co-editors in chief Katie Borchetta and Kyndal Nystrom led the staff last year. Borchetta is currently attending the University of Texas and Nystrom is at Wichita State in Kansas.
Junior Tori Thedford’s spread on sports medicine was selected to be featured, along with one of her photos from a photo contest in which she got an honorable mention.
“It’s great to be featured in the book, I worked hard,” Tori said. “I want everyone to feel that way when seeing themselves in the yearbook.”
More than 11,000 high schools will receive the Look Book in the United States, Canada, and Internationally to use as examples of excellence for inspiration when planning their own yearbook’s design and coverage.
“This was the next to the last yearbook I made and I hope the 15th, this year’s yearbook, is featured as well,” Mrs. Thedford said. “We’ll find out next April.”
