Yearbook wraps up production

The school year is almost over, and while that may mean summer is just around the corner, it also means that the highly anticipated 2014-2015 yearbook is complete and close to being released. Unbeknownst to many students at Brookfield Central, behind the glossy and colorful pages of the yearbook, the editors and staff have spent countless hours in the imaging lab designing, formatting, and writing. The yearbook has been a stressful, yet enjoyable yearlong project, especially for the Editors-in-Chief, Chris Mueller (‘15), Corinne Fales (‘16), and Emma Kumer (‘16).

“When the three of us EICs pushed the submit button for the last pages, it was like an exciting calm came over the room,” said Fales, describing the satisfying moment when the yearbook was finally finished.

But the week leading up to the deadline was not so calm. The atmosphere in the imaging lab during the final days of production could only be described as stressed and hectic.

“EICs were trying to get all of the pages submitted, and other people were trying to finish and correct pages for submission,” said editor Emma Shibilski (‘16). “Everyone was scrambling to get everything out as quickly and as smoothly as possible.”

“Yearbook and crazy are synonyms,” added Taylor Moon (‘16), a journalism editor.

For those who invested a lot of their time into the yearbook, the feeling of completing it is a strange one. The yearbook staff no longer has to stay after school on Wednesdays or work on pages during lunch. All they have to do now is wait.

“I can’t wait to hear everyone’s reaction after looking through the product we have been slaving over for a year,” said Shibilski, full of anticipation.

So what can BC students look forward to seeing in this year’s yearbook? For now, that information is still confidential, but Fales and Moon did tease that some new technology and fascinating writing will make an appearance.

Students who have not ordered a yearbook can still get their hands on the yearbook by talking to the Bookkeeper in Room 1012 if they want to find out about these new features of the book’s 272 pages.
