Last year’s Pantherian Yearbook titled “Branching Out” was recently awarded second place by the American Scholastic Press Association (ASPA).
The staff became eligible for this award by mailing an application to the ASPA. Each school that submits an application is categorized by their number of students. Saegertown was placed in a division along with other schools that enrolled roughly 550 students last year.
The ASPA judges each yearbook on aspects such as: overall use of theme, use of color, photographs, quality of the copy (stories) and inclusion of as many students as possible. Yearbook adviser Mrs. Dee Henry said, “We were proud of our overall aesthetic appearance and lack of grammatical errors.”
The ASPA provides feedback for the yearbook staff as well. They critique the publication and make suggestions to improve or change aspects of the yearbook. “We are really excited to make the necessary changes to improve our publication this year,” said Mrs. Henry.
