Meridian smiles for the 25th time

This year the Hawks are celebrating an exciting milestone.  It’s the 25th yearbook anniversary for Meridian High School.

Ms. Moore, head of yearbook, explained her and the yearbook staff stayed in a hotel for three days and took classes while trying to figure out what the theme and layout of the book will look like.  It gives them more time “having that fresh slate to start all over with a brand new concept, and then after that comes a lot of work,”  said Moore.

“Yearbook camp is one of my favorite things to do during the summer.  We get to bond with one another, come up with great ideas, and create memories,” said editor-in-chief, Sydney Moore.

Twelve years ago, Cinda Stocks, the former yearbook adviser, started looking for a replacement before she retired in 2007. “Ms. Moore’s name just kind of rose to the top,” says Stocks.

“I’d done 17 yearbooks, I wasn’t about to turn that over to somebody that I thought was just going to do it because the principal said, we need a yearbook adviser and you need to do it.”

It’s safe to say the 2018-19 yearbook will include some unique touches.  “We are working with DynaGraphics who’s a local company to see if we can’t figure out a way to make the hourglass on the front of the yearbook actually work,” said Moore.
