Development of The Huntingtonian’s 2017 Edition Underway

Publication of the Huntington High School yearbook is an annual tradition.

September 16, 2016

The Huntington High School yearbook has been published yearly in a format close to the current one since 1930. The annual edition takes a force of dedicated students to design, compile and edit and the 2017 book will be no different.

This school year’s edition of The Huntingtonian won’t be released until next June, but the yearbook club is already meeting and discussing which members will handle specific aspects of the book. An after-school session was held on Wednesday afternoon in the classroom of faculty advisor Elizabeth Casazza.

“There were over 40 students that came to the first meeting to learn about yearbook club,” Mrs. Casazza said. “Many seniors want to be part of helping create the 2017 yearbook. There are over 50 assignments that students were welcomed to sign up for to help design the 220 pages. There’s lots of excitement and enthusiasm for the upcoming yearbook. Elections for positions will be held next week.”

Sophomore Katherine DeGennaro is considering serving as the yearbook’s sports editor. It’s a big job with significant responsibilities, but the articulate teenager is thinking about putting her creative skills to use, designing one of the most important sections in any year’s volume.

“It’s exciting to highlight all of the wonderful athletes and team spirit that we have here in Huntington,” Ms. DeGennaro said. “I have reached out to obtain some of the information that we will need to put together a section that everyone is sure to love.”

Huntington’s School Heritage Museum includes copies of every high school yearbook published since 1930. Prior to that year, smaller sized pamphlets were issued annually. They were more literary in nature, but did contain recaps of events, clubs and sports teams. Those pamphlets are also in the School Heritage Museum’s collection.
