The end of the year is coming, which means 2017 yearbook will soon be available.
This year is the 78th volume of the Rocketeer. This year’s theme is full circle and symbolizes the journey of a student, from freshman to sophomore year, leading to graduation.
“This year’s theme shows the different components that make up a student’s experience,” Carroll Huebner, yearbook adviser, said. “Completing the full circle is graduation.”
The yearbook, as the name implies, is a year in review. Long after students have left Northwest, they can still visit past memories of club memberships and celebratory events.
For freshmen who will sticking around for another semester, the yearbook can help them find things to look forward to next year.
“You get to see an event that you didn’t know about, and you can look for it next semester,” Karen Parks, yearbook editor, said.
A lot of work was put into making the yearbook happen. Huebner, Parks, the Communications staff and the newspaper staff helped gather photos and stories to represent the year.
“It is a huge endeavor, but it is worth it when you get to see a copy in your own hands,” Huebner said.
This is Huebner’s sixth year to advise the yearbook. Parks, a graphic design technology student, will be walking in this year’s spring commencement ceremony to receive her technical certificate.
“It is fun to be a part of the yearbook,” Parks said. “It has been a good experience and required lots of time management and meeting new people.”
Students will be able to pick up their free copy of the yearbook during clearance in the Communications Office on the Senatobia campus. The DeSoto and Oxford Centers will be handing yearbooks out in their bookstores.
