The Balfour Company that prints school yearbooks has selected the Glassford Hill Middle School's yearbook to use as a sample book it will distribute across the nation.

Sample yearbooks are used as journalism resources in workshops and by Balfour representatives in their selling efforts.

"Only 2 percent of books nationwide get selected," said Diana Campbell, seventh-grade Social Studies/Journalism teacher and yearbook advisor. "They look at last year's book and what we have done so far this year, and then they make their selection."

Campbell's team of 14 students chooses a theme each year and follows it throughout the year. This year's theme is "Panthers Stalking Success."

In her second year as advisor, Campbell said the students have added in the use of copy stories and captions to go along with the photos.

"Each two-page spread has a story. We worked hard to make sure every photo has a caption identifying students and what they are doing. It tells a little story," Campbell said.

Successes so far include participation in the geography and spelling bees, sports, academics and clubs.

A major challenge every year is including as many activities as possible before each page deadline.
