Jostens, the leading producer of yearbooks and student-created content, today announced that Holland Hall School’s yearbook program has been named a 2019 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 such as communication, collaboration, and information and communication technologies (ICT) literacy.

The Holland Hall School award-winning yearbook program was led by editor-in-chief Ashley Mabrey along with Becca Levit, Lily Siemens, and Seerut Parmar under the direction of Shirley Sokolosky, Holland Hall School yearbook adviser.

Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence Awards are presented twice a year, in spring and fall for yearbooks delivered during the school year. The Award was presented to the Holland Hall yearbook program for achieving the defined criteria in each of the three following categories: creating an inclusive yearbook, generating school engagement, and successfully managing the yearbook creation process.

The Holland Hall School yearbook program will receive a gem-studded recognition pin and a banner to display so the entire school community will be aware of the outstanding achievement.
