Oyster Bay High School’s Yearbook Program Earns National Honor
Oyster Bay High School’s yearbook program was recently presented with the 2022 National Yearbook Program of Excellence award at the bronze level from Jostens. The award-winning yearbook program is led by co-editors and seniors Kristen Purcell and Natalie Varolian, under the direction of Dr. Deirdre Faughey, Oyster Bay High School yearbook adviser.
The National Yearbook Program of Excellence recognizes engaging yearbooks that reflect a broad representation of the student body while helping students develop 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, and information and communication technologies (ICT) literacy.
“I am so proud of the hard work and dedication of this yearbook staff,” Dr. Faughey said. “With the visionary leadership of Kristen and Natalie, the team came together to create a book that will serve as a beautiful memory of this school year.”
Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence Awards are presented twice a year based on the yearbook’s arrival date at the school. The award was presented to the Oyster Bay High School yearbook program for achieving defined criteria in between one and three of the following categories: creating an inclusive yearbook, generating school engagement and successfully managing the yearbook creation process.
