Houston, TX – The St. Agnes Academy yearbook staff has been recognized by Balfour Yearbooks with an Honorable Mention Certificate of Recognition for its outstanding contribution to scholastic journalism. The SAA yearbook is included in the 2012 YearbookYearbook.
“Good yearbooks capture the history of the year in words and pictures. To be recognized by Balfour in YearbookYearbook, your book isn’t just good, it’s GREAT. It relates stories that the students obviously wanted to share. Those stories, told through words and photographs, evoke an experience in the readers, taking them back to a game, a dance or a rehearsal. It’s a magical experience. It was magical when the book came out, and it will retain its magic 50 years from now,” said Balfour education specialist Judi Coolidge.
Yearbooks published by Balfour for the 2011-2012 school year were evaluated in one of more of the following areas: theme development, layout design, photo content, secondary packages, and cover design. For their outstanding yearbook achievement, Balfour recognized approximately 15% of yearbook staffs annually.
Kathi Thompson, yearbook advisor, said “I am very proud of our Academy women who worked on the yearbook. They were a creative and hard-working group that produced a product that will be treasured for years to come.”
