YEARBOOK FEATURED IN COMPILATION OF BEST
The 2004 yearbook for West Aurora High School is featured in the 2005
Gotcha Covered Look Book, a gallery of the best yearbook spreads and
West Highs yearbook, Eos, was among 500 selected from thousands submitted
to a panel of judges for inclusion in the standard reference book for
yearbook advisors and staffs published by Jostens. Student Mark Nardone was
the editor of the 2004 edition. Kim Dirck is West Highs yearbook adviser.
The design, photography, reporting and journalistic quality of many school
yearbooks approach the work of professionals, says Gary Lungren, senior
program manager/education at Jostens. The Gotcha Covered Look Book
features the best of the best.
Dirck and the yearbook staff received an award plaque from Jostens to
recognize the achievement.
This is the fourth year that Jostens had held the competition, and West
Highs designs have won awards for the past two, says Dirck. Our staff
keeps improving each year.
