Students receive yearbooks

Zach Padersky, Eastside Staff

Over the years, it has become a tradition to save all of the best memories of high school and photos of the students into one book to allow students to look back on their youth whenever they would like.

The newest edition of the annual East Yearbook has been distributed over the past few weeks and it has been popular among the students. For 95 dollars, anyone could purchase this year’s edition to reminisce over the past year and gather autographs from their peers.

This year’s yearbook was one of the most successful in East history.

“I think it’s the best that I have seen in my 4 years,” said Marisa Camacho (’15) who has taken part in the Yearbook Committee as a Performing Arts Editor for the past three years. Camacho attributed the success of this year’s edition to the fact that there were a lot of senior editors who wanted to put in extra effort, considering it was their last year.

Dr. John Vivone, an English teacher at East, once again was in charge of the yearbook.

“Sales were very good this year,” said Vivone. “In past years some books have sold out completely, but this one is definitely among the top.”

Over the course of the creation of the yearbook, the staff became very close this year.

William Lewis and Jaymee Gonzales both served as staff members this year, and both said that it was a lot of fun making the book this year.

“There were a lot of great pictures this year,” said Lewis, who mentioned that the quality of this year’s pictures really put it over the top.

Looking back on the year, Vivone proclaimed that it was one of the best ever, “It was a great staff,” he said. “They did an outstanding job.”
