ABSECON _ The yearbook Holy Spirit High School students will reflect on to remember their teen years has been described as a yearbook everyone will want to look at.

Why? It’s just that good.

“Spartan,” Holy Spirit High School’s yearbook has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2013 Josten’s “Gotcha Covered Look Book, Volume 11.”

Josten’s annual publication honors the best in yearbook design and coverage.

Jostens “Look Book” is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks. The annual publication features the yearbooks’ creative themes, cool covers, dazzling designs, relevant coverage, storytelling copy and action-packed photography.

Along with design excellence, “Look Book” honors the important role well-crafted yearbooks play in helping schools chronicle the experiences, stories and achievements most relevant to students and that academic year.

The 2012 “Spartan” Yearbook was created by students Gabbi Chilellli, Megan Bottino, Alix Hesley, Joanna Muller, Marina Poupart, Caitlin Randik, Fiona Tran, Zach Bailey, Erika Bryz-Gornia, Abby Couchard, Jenna Gallagher, Jessica Guevara, Erica Havens, Jennifer Johnston, Vivian Lee, Mike Lugo, Annalyn Madriaga, Simon Mohr and Alexis Theuret, with student Editor Marisa Marmaro.

The yearbook was produced under the direction of Denise Lamanna, Holy Spirit yearbook adviser and English department chairperson.

“It is always exciting and a challenge to put together a meaningful and creative yearbook, one that will be enjoyed and treasured for years to come,” Lamanna said. “However, working with a staff of creative and dedicated students makes it not only enjoyable, but memorable in itself.”

“Spartan” was one of only 425 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000 entries. The 2013 panel of judges, comprised of nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award-winning yearbook advisers, selected the best examples of yearbook spreads and covers to make up the 352-page “2013 Look Book.”

“Yearbooks are unique, limited edition books created by students to capture the stories and events for all of the school’s students and Jostens is proud to celebrate the yearbook tradition and the 425 yearbooks selected for the ‘2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book,’” said John Dalke, editor. “Today’s yearbooks are very sophisticated in terms of visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured.”

Lamanna and her yearbook staff received a copy of Jostens “2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book” and a plaque from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.
