Jostens, the leading producer of yearbooks and student-created content, announced that Great Bend Middle
School’s yearbook “Panther Prowl” has been named a 2017 Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence.
The Great Bend Middle School award-winning yearbook program is led by Holly Tittel, library media specialist and yearbook adviser.
Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence Awards are presented twice a year, in spring and in fall for yearbooks delivered during the school year. The award was presented to the Great Bend Middle School yearbook for achieving the defined criteria in each of three 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 acted as wonderful stewards by creating an exceptional yearbook for their school and community,” said Chuck Mooty, Jostens president and CEO.
“Yearbooks are a critical part of telling a school’s story and Jostens is dedicated to supporting yearbook staff members with state-of-the-art tools and resources that help celebrate moments that matter.”
The Great Bend Middle School yearbook will receive a gem-studded recognition pin and a banner to display in the school so the entire school community will be aware of the outstanding achievement.
