Meredosia-Chambersburg’s yearbook committee has been awarded a prestigious honor from a national program.

Meredosia-Chambersbug was one of 16 schools to earn the 2015 Josten’s National Yearbook Program of Excellence earlier this month.

Jack Shupe has been the yearbook advisor at Meredosia-Chambersburg for the past four years and says the award means a great deal to the school.

“Some of the criteria used to judge us was the number of people we used in the yearbook, the creation process with our students and how we met our deadlines,” says Shupe.

Shupe says the eight student staff was extremely busy planning the yearbook.

“They had to edit pictures, put the pages together using an online program, pick the colors, create the captions, proofread and keep track of who was in the yearbook,” says Shupe.

The school will receive a plaque and banner to showcase the dedicated work of the yearbook committee.
