For the second consecutive year, the King’s Academy high school yearbook program has been named a Jostens National Yearbook Program of Excellence.
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.
TKA’s 2015 award-winning yearbook, Bigger & Better, was led by editor-in-chief and senior Casey Walker under the direction of yearbook advisor Teresa Blakeney. The book was dedicated to high school Principal Sonya Jones in recognition of her impact on the lives of students and the example she sets for them to follow.
“We started out the year with the goal that we would do everything we needed to do in order to earn this award for the second year in a row, and I am so excited and proud of my yearbook staff for helping us get there,” Walker said. “It is such an honor to say that we are part of the two percent of schools that receive this award.”
TKA’s yearbook program received the prestigious award for creating an inclusive yearbook, generating school engagement and successfully managing the yearbook creation process. TKA will receive a plaque to display in the yearbook area and a banner to display in the school.
