Yearbook issues one-day sale

Every year, students congregate in Ground Zero to cash-in on an opportunity to buy memories. The annual yearbook sale will allow prospective buyers a $10 discount as well as a Taco-Bell lunch with their purchase of the 2008 yearbook, on Sept. 21.

?Initially, the one day sale is $75 per book, which is a $10 increase from last year,? Molly Sargent, yearbook adviser, said. ?Production costs have gone up so much; we had to raise the prices.?

Despite the price hike, students interested in buying an optional commemorative disc, containing extra pictures not featured due to lack of space, may do so for a small fee.

?There?s a basic package you can buy for $85 which includes a DVD with your yearbook,? Sargent said. ?The disc comes with extra photos and you can even put your own photos on it as well.?

With the combined cost of the yearbooks reaching $30,000, all proceeds collected at the sale and thereafter go towards the book’s final publication.

?There is no profit,? Sargent said. ?All of the money goes into the yearbook, with any remains going back into the product.?

Though the one-day sale only persuades about half of the student body to buy in advance, Sargent estimates that about 95% of students will buy the yearbook.

?I always buy a yearbook,? Angela Costanzo, ’08, said. ?I want to be able to look back after high school and remember all the great times I?ve shared with my friends these past four years.?

Others simply enjoy the time taken out of class to make the purchase.

?I?m just glad to have the opportunity to get out of class,? Zach Ragan, ’11, said. ?It?s great to be able to have a special time set aside to refresh and buy our yearbooks.?

    It’s so awesome to see that Nacoya was up on stage singing at chapel! I had always seen her as a leader, and even singing in the audience during last year’s chapels. Now it’s wonderful to see that shes able to get up on stage and help out with the worship!

    I miss going to the chapels every week and I’m glad to see it’s still growing.

    Whoo hoo Nacoya!

    Nacoya has always been a leader and a strong example when it comes to praising God through good times and bad. She just worships God however she feels led to, and we could all do the same.

    We shouldn’t worry about what our friends think of us, we should be focused on praising and worshiping God. It was so encouraging to see such free worship among my fellow senior classmates!

    It’s going to be a great year! Way to lead, Nacoya!!
