Student editors of last year’s book were Grace McGurran, Sarah Kraft, Megan Ross, Maeve Swackhamer, Ty Dowda, Katie Clark, and Sonya Miller. Ellen Guerin, EHS language arts teacher, is the yearbook advisor. The yearbook was rated “excellent” in areas including “telling the story of the year in a compelling, authentic, journalistic manner,” presenting a visually attractive design and creating a book that is reader-friendly and historically accurate.
According the Guerin, the yearbook has not receive such a high score since the early 2000s. Last year it received a Silver Medal ranking. “I am so proud of our staff for achieving Gold this year,” she said.
