Here’s to us, and here’s to the Menagerie staff for producing an amazing yearbook this school year. The 2016-17 yearbook, titled “Here’s to US,” was released and distributed on May 24.
“The inspiration for this year’s yearbook was a tribute to us, the student body. Rather than focusing on the duration our school has been here, the focus was to see Leesville through the eyes of the students themselves and is a celebration of all we do as high school students” said Eliza Bohinski, sophomore staffer.
All year the yearbook staff worked on designing and creating their assigned pages; throughout the semesters, each student attend school events and contacted students for their pictures in order to create a diverse, and representative, memento of the school year.
May 24, nicknamed Distribution Day, was the first day both the Menagerie staff and the student body saw the yearbooks. During lunch, the staff, dressed in matching tie-dyed shirts, separated into pairs to distribute yearbooks based on last name.
“[The best part of distribution day was] probably opening all of our yearbooks together. We all, [the yearbook staff], get to chill and look at them. Opening it up and seeing your page for the first time is the best part,” said Emma Shepherd, sports editor and junior.
If you were absent or were unable to pick up your yearbook on May 24, stop by Ms. Amerson’s room 223.
