Yearbook Editorial staffAttending the National Scholastic Press Association convention in Boston refreshed and refueled the editorial staff of the yearbook. Ashton Anderson, Emily Bishop, Laura Peed, Veronica Fulton, Alex Pagliaro, Emily Stevenson, Mrs. Brooke Perry and Miss Carol Neal attended workshops, spent time with other yearbook staffs and met with consultants to discuss this year’s book. “It was exciting to learn from the pros,” Laura Peed said. “We got good feedback on our book, and we were challenged to incorporate new ideas.”

Connecting with former students was a highlight of the trip. Emily Bishop spent the afternoon with Alex Hall at Gordon, the girls visited with Alex Danielsen who attends MIT and Miss Neal caught up with Linda Allen Mosquera, ’78 Optime editor. Between visits and workshops the group also managed a trip to Quincy Market and a tour of Harvard.

The whole group brought back valuable knowledge to share with the entire staff, such as how to write effective copy, how to be great editors and leaders, and crucial improvements to make the book the absolute best.
