Fort Dorchester High School's yearbook, The Patriot, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book, Volume 11 celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage. Jostens Look Book is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, cool covers, dazzling designs, relevant coverage, storytelling copy and action-packed photography. Along with design excellence, the annually published 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 Patriot was created by the following students under the direction of James Roller, FDHS's yearbook adviser: Kayla Clowers, Alexa Carey, Devin l’Amoreaux, Jordan Orr, Devron Glenn, Noelle Denton, Laura Gryder, Jessica Gregg, William Gaskins, Wendy Madrigal, Celina Brown, Austin Jones, Tyler Jones, Cayce Berry, Jamie Grae Taylor, Meaghan Fitzgerald, Zach Grieger, Allison Acosta, and Allie Couch
"We are humbled to be honored yet again by Jostens and included in this edition of the
Look Book. This is a recognition of the hard work and effort of a staff of students who were dedicated to create (and pay for) a quality publication of which the school could be proud. We couldn't have done it without the continued support of the administration and faculty members, who consistently provide us the backing we need to be successful,” said Roller.
The Fort Dorchester High School Patriot was one of only 425 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. 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.”
Mr. Roller and his yearbook staff received a copy of Jostens 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book and plaque from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.
