Temple City High School’s Templar Yearbook staff took top honors at this year’s “Yearbooks at the Beach” camp.
Sixteen TCHS students, Templar’s editor-in-chief, four editors, and eleven staffers in photography, copywriting, and design, went to the five-day camp at Cal State
Long Beach, along with instructor/advisor Elizabeth Botello.
After completing several classes in their specialized yearbook sections, all schools were required to create a “theme” packet for this year’s book. After a week of bonding as a staff, TCHS took home four individual awards, including
“Best Individual Designer” for Senior and editor-in-chief, Priscilla Chong.
Also TCHS was one of nine schools selected for a top prize, a theme award for “You Rockwell”, which was given to those schools who were able to produce the best “theme” packet for their upcoming yearbook. More than five hundred students from forty-four schools nationwide attended camp. TCHS has successfully won back-to-back honors for the most esteemed prize!
“The students and I are looking forward to another great year that involves creating a national, award-winning yearbook”, announced Ms. Botello.
Temple City High School serves students in Grades nine through twelve in the Temple City Unified School District. For more information about TCHS, call 626-548-5042.
