Eisenhower yearbook recognized

A high school yearbook is more than just photographs and words.

It’s a whole bundle of high school memories in one convenient package.

And Eisenhower Middle High School’s is a good one.

Jostens awarded the school’s yearbook program its Silver Level 2021 National Yearbook Program of Excellence.

“This has been a challenging school year for our yearbook editors and staff, but they rose to the task and created beautiful spreads of the 2020-2021 School Year of Eisenhower Middle High School,” advisor Jessica McElhaney said. “I am very proud of all of their accomplishments in the creation of the yearbook and the leadership we had of our editors and upperclassman. This will definitely be a year to remember and one they will never forget.”
