Jostens, the leading producer of yearbooks and student-created content, announced that Drew Central’s yearbook program has achieved the Jostens 2022 National Yearbook Program of Excellence award at the Silver Level. The National Yearbook Program of Excellence recognizes engaging yearbooks that reflect a broad representation of the student body while helping students develop 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, and information and communication technologies (ICT) literacy.

The Drew Central award-winning yearbook program is led by Michael Herman, Editor and Karleigh Hoskins, Assistant Editor under the direction of Chaille Brown, Drew Central yearbook adviser.

“Our yearbook is fully created by students,” said Mrs. Brown, “and I am proud of their hard work and dedication.  The product speaks for itself.”

Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence Awards are presented twice a year, in spring and in fall based on the yearbook’s arrival date at the school. The award was presented to the Drew Central yearbook program for achieving defined criteria in between one and three of the following categories: creating an inclusive yearbook, generating school engagement, and successfully managing the yearbook creation process. 

“Jostens is proud to recognize those individuals who have created an exceptional yearbook for their school and community,” said Tammy Whitaker, Jostens VP and COO Yearbook Division. “These schools did an exceptional job on multiple levels, despite the challenges presented by this school year. Yearbooks are a critical part of capturing and telling a school’s story, and Jostens is dedicated to supporting yearbook staff members as they do their important work.”
