“R is for Responsibility” – Are you being responsible?


Producing a yearbook is a lot of fun, but it also carries a great responsibility. A yearbook lasts forever and cannot be reproduced once the year is over. Because of this, every picture, every caption, every quote in every story, and even every graphic has to be true and accurate. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind as you record the year’s memories for your school community:

  • Check and double check names. No one wants their name misspelled forever.
  • Captions and Senior Superlatives are a part of the coverage. They are not a place for inside jokes.
  • It’s our place to record history, not make it up. Make sure your scores, quotes and sources are verified.
