For the third year in a row, the DeForest Area High School Yearbook was chosen as a Gallery of Excellence yearbook for their 2016-17 edition.
The Gallery of Excellence is awarded by the Walsworth Publishing Company and is an honor, because each yearbook inducted must feature superior examples of coverage, design, photography and copy.
“I am really proud of all the hard work my co-editors and the rest of the yearbook staff put into last year’s yearbook; and I’m really proud that I helped produce three Gallery of Excellence yearbooks!” exclaimed Abi Gardiner. According to Gardiner, last year’s yearbook staff was a mix of new and returning staff members, but their goal was to win another Gallery of Excellence Award.
“There was a ton of hard work and dedication put into that yearbook, and it is an amazing feeling to be a part of such an amazing group who worked hard to accomplish a common goal,” proclaimed Brooke Yocum, who has been a part of the yearbook team for two years. “The 2017-18 yearbook staff is largely made up of new members again, but this staff is motivated to continue DeForest Area High School’s streak of producing award winning yearbooks,” said Yocum.
The DAHS Yearbook Advisor is Mr. Alan Ligocki.
