The Excalibur 2015 was created by the students of Montgomery Catholic High School’s Yearbook Staff under the direction of Bettina Sinclair, the school’s yearbook adviser.  They were recognized for their cover design which featured a custom litho combo design with super matte lamination and ShineFX applications.

The Montgomery Catholic Preparatory Excalibur yearbook publication was one of only 418 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000 entries nationwide. The 2017 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 296-page 2017 Look Book.

“Even in 2017, Yearbooks are unique, limited edition time capsules created by students to capture the unique memories, stories and events of a school year.  I couldn’t be more proud of Mrs. Sinclair and her staff for their excellent work”, said Tyler Melton, area Jostens Yearbooks representative. “They carefully selected and developed their theme for the yearbook which always starts with a great concept for the cover design.  They then designed pages that focused on relevant and inclusive content, and it is great to see them rewarded for their creativity.”

Sinclair and her yearbook staff received a copy of the 2017 Jostens Look Book and a certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.

The Jostens Look Book is a must-have resource for yearbook advisers and staffs seeking creative design and coverage ideas, trends and inspiration. The Look Book complements and, Jostens online destinations for yearbook creation ideas.
