Highland Park High School journalism teacher Heather Hooper was recently notified that the 2012 Highlander yearbook has been selected by publisher Balfour as a national sample. The book was flagged as outstanding based on the first 30 pages submitted to the company.
Balfour will print extra copies of the yearbook and share it with sales representatives and other high school staffs across the county. It was also be represented as a sample at the JEA National Conference in San Antonio next year. Only four percent of books are chosen for this honor. The last Kansas school to receive this distinction was Shawnee Mission North.
Congratulations to the yearbook staff: Karri Fulton (editor), Taylor Schley (editor), Erin Gigger, Jessica Spaulding, Cierra Sommers-Lunkins, Shantae' Talbert, Shanise Brooks, Antwanique Peppers, Delores Smith and Breanne Douglas.
