White River High School’s yearbook has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2013 “Gotcha Covered Look Book, Volume 11,” which celebrates the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage.

Jostens’ “Look Book” is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, dazzling designs, relevant coverage, storytelling copy and action-packed photography. Along with design excellence, the annual “Look Book” honors the important role well-crafted yearbooks play in helping schools chronicle the experiences, stories and achievements most relevant to students and that academic year.

The 2011-12 yearbook was headed by editor Willow Foley under the direction of Nick Cochran, WRHS yearbook adviser.

“Yearbook has been an amazing experience,” Foley said. “I am so blessed to be part of a group that is so successful.”

“I am honored to have worked with students who are so willing to give up countless hours and energy to create amazing books year after year,” Cochran said. “Our goal is to improve the yearbook program and publication every year and so far we have been able to accomplish this.”

White River’s yearbook was one of 425 selected from approximately 3,000. The 2013 panel of judges, comprised of nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award-winning yearbook advisers, selected the best examples of yearbook spreads and covers.

Cochran and his yearbook staff received a copy of Jostens 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book and plaque from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.
