This year’s yearbook will be the 50th Pearce yearbook. The theme is gold standard because the 50th anniversary of something is the golden anniversary.
Editor-in-chief Molly Queal will be making several important changes to the yearbook this year. Some these changes will include having more of the clubs in the yearbook and having students conduct polls in the cafeteria. The book will also highlight some of the important awards Pearce students might get. In addition, there will also be a showcase of old yearbook covers as well as more changes and additions to come.
“I’m really honored to be the editor-in-chief of such a historic yearbook, and I’m excited to see what the year has in store,” Molly said.
With this being such an important yearbook, the staff is working hard to create a completely new, exciting and never-before-seen yearbook. Along with all the other changes, this yearbook will also include what the school looked like in past years and what Pearce might look like in another 50 years.
“Obviously we want this year to be the best because it’s the 50th anniversary. This year we are making a lot of exciting changes,” sports editor Madie Rogers said.
This year’s goal is to sell 1,100 yearbooks to the 2,176 students at Pearce. While they only sold around 750 yearbooks last year, the staff is hoping the added participation and the 50th anniversary will spur the students to buy a yearbook for this significant year.
“One of our goals this year is to increase the number of sales dramatically so that we don’t have to increase the price of the book or reduce its size,” yearbook sponsor Walter Gast said.
