High school yearbook honored nationally

Local News

VILLA GROVE, Ill. (WCIA) — Villa Grove High School was recognized Wednesday for having one of the nation’s best yearbooks.

The school was named a National Yearbook of Excellence by Jostens. They were honored with a banner and plaque from the memorabilia company. Only one other school in the state got the same honor. Sophomore Ava Vollmer says she was surprised by the recognition.

“It’s exciting because the banner’s kinda cool,” says Vollmer. “But it’s just something that yearbook’s never gotten before and also something we got recognized for that doesn’t happen a lot.”

The group actually sells their yearbooks for half the price of production. The team often works fundraisers and sells ads to keep the prices low for families.
