Yearbook Earns National Design Recognition

Caritas Vol. 43 cover featured in Jostens 2011 Gotcha Covered Look Book

Bishop McNamara’s yearbook, Caritas Vol. 43, has been recognized for national excellence and featured in the 2011 Gotcha Covered Look Book, Volume 9. The Caritas was one of only 400 yearbooks selected from over 3,000 submitted to a panel of judges that included nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award-winning yearbook advisers.

The Caritas was created by editor-in-chief Simone Harris ’10 and a yearbook staff of 15, under the direction of Ms. Angela De Leonibus, yearbook adviser. The 43rd edition of the Caritas was titled “Exchange,” referencing the never-ending sharing of ideas, cultures, and personalities at BMHS.

“The yearbook program has improved dramatically over the past few years and this is the first time we have been featured in the Look Book. I’m incredibly proud of all of the hard work the staff put into the book and I can’t wait to see what we come up with next,” Ms. De Leonibus said.

Jostens’s Look Book, published annually, 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. The Gotcha Covered Look Book features the extraordinary work of yearbook staffs and advisers from around the world and is a popular resource for yearbook advisers and staffs seeking creative design and coverage ideas, trends and inspiration.

“The yearbooks selected for the Jostens 2011 Gotcha Covered Look Book reflect the sophistication and relevance of yearbook programs,” said Gary Lundgren, Jostens senior program manager/education.

Ms. De Leonibus and her staff received a copy of Jostens’s 2011 Gotcha Covered Look Book, as well as a certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.
