Design Your Ad Options

Senior Graduation: Designing your Recognition Ad

The Senior Grad/Recognition Ads section has been one of the most popular parts of the yearbook for years. Seniors love their parents' personal messages and always anticipate which baby pictures will be chosen. You can wish them good luck, pass on some words of wisdom, tell them how proud you are of them, and embarrass them with baby pictures, anything you would like! We have made buying an ad easy with the attached directions. Don’t wait too long though; we have only a limited number of pages this year for Senior Grad Ads and they are accepted on a first come, first serve basis! 

You may design this Ad yourself Online or have the yearbook staff put together an ad using your supplied photos and information. There is a $10.00 charge for our staff to create it.
