Ads for Grads Yearbook Tributes to Class of 2017

Honoring seniors as they graduate from high school with a special yearbook tribute is a great way to celebrate their achievements and show your pride.
The Ads for Grads program is an opportunity for parents, relatives and friends to submit photos and messages for the yearbook. Space is limited and fills quickly, so pricing is structured on a monthly schedule.
The earlybird deadline runs until Sept. 1, 2016, so orders submitted by then will earn the lowest possible price. Each month, the price increases. Orders are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
The ordering process is simple and doesn’t require creating or designing anything – just submit the order form, payment, photos and message. Whitney High Student Media will do the rest! 
Click here for the order form, which includes instructions. Contact if you have any questions.
