Red Mountain High School’s yearbook, Pinnacle, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2017 Jostens Look Book, celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage.

The Jostens Look Book is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, cool covers, dazzling designs, relevant coverage, storytelling copy and action-packed photography.

Along with design excellence, the annually published Look Book honors the important role well-crafted yearbooks play in helping schools chronicle the experiences, stories and achievements most relevant to students and that academic year.

The Pinnacle was created by Editor-in-Chiefs Jordyn Holman and Jake Baker under the direction of Jan Lemon-Saquella, Red Mountain High School yearbook adviser.

“This just further confirms how amazing our 2016 yearbook really was,” Lemon-Saquella said. “I am so proud of my students who are so deserving of this recognition.”

The Red Mountain High School Pinnacle yearbook was one of only 418 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. The 2017 panel of judges, comprised of nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award-winning yearbook advisers, selected the best examples of yearbook spreads and covers to make up the 344-page 2017 Look Book.

“Yearbooks are unique, limited edition books created by students to capture the stories and events for all of the school’s students and Jostens is proud to celebrate the yearbook tradition and the 418 yearbooks selected for the 2017 Jostens Look Book, said Gary Lundgren, editor. “Today’s yearbooks are very sophisticated in terms of visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured.”

Lemon-Saquella and her yearbook staff received a copy of the 2017 Jostens Look Book and certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.

The Jostens Look Book is a must-have resource for yearbook advisers and staffs seeking creative design and coverage ideas, trends and inspiration. The Look Book complements www.YearbookAvenue.com and www.facebook.com/JostensAdviserandStaff, Jostens online destinations for yearbook creation ideas.

The first Pinnacle yearbook began in the fall of 1989. Throughout the years, the annual has received numerous awards including a First Place for General Excellence in the 2016 Arizona Interscholastic Press Association contest for excellence in journalism.
