  • Front.library.books
    MACK DICKSON takes a book off the “blind date” cart at the Fayette library. Patrons can choose a book without knowing what’s inside other than a general category. The books are among those designated for removal so patrons can consider them gifts. In Morenci, new books and staff favorites were chosen from the stacks and must be returned. Patrons get a piece of chocolate, too, to take on their date, but no clue about their “date.” One reader said she really enjoyed her book for a few pages, but then lost interest—so typical for a blind date.

Morenci school yearbook staff honored 02.10.10

Written by David Green.

Morenci Area High School’s yearbook staff earned an Honorable Mention Certificate of Recognition from Taylor Publishing for its dedication, effort and accomplishments. Morenci’s yearbook will be listed in the 2010 Yearbook Yearbook. Kate Joughin was the editor and Heather Walker is the adviser.

Yearbooks published by Taylor for the 2009 school year were evaluated in one or more of the following areas: cover design, theme development, layout design, photo content and secondary packages.

“We were thrilled when we found out early in the fall that we were even being considered for the Yearbook Yearbook, said Ms. Walker. “It took several months to learn we had advanced to the semifinals, then last week we received notice of the honorable mention.”

“Since Taylor publishes nationwide and only the top 15 percent are chosen for inclusion in Yearbook Yearbook, even honorable mention is quite an accomplishment.”

She said Morenci has been affiliated with Taylor for more than 30 years and she’s not aware that The Revista was ever before considered for Yearbook Yearbook.

“Being selected for Yearbook Yearbook is like being handed an Oscar, an acknowledgment of superior quality,” Judi Coolidge of Taylor Publishing wrote in a letter to the yearbook staff. “But more important, your work will be admired by thousands of student journalists who use Yearbook Yearbook as an inspiration to ignite their creative process.”
