SCOTCH PLAINS, N.J -- Union Catholic celebrated one of its most exciting traditions when the new yearbooks were handed out to the Class of 2019 during a special distribution event at the school on Wednesday.
The underclassmen will receive their yearbooks next week.
After eight months and countless hours collaborating, designing and laying out the yearbook, UC'sYearbook Staff of seniors Gary Zhou, Molly Bonner, Robby Camisa, Karen Degnan, Rhiannon Ierardi, Chloe John, Lucy Lu, Ally Ramistella, Nya Spencer, and Kem Torres, and moderator Mrs. Katie Sagendorf, completed something that students at Union Catholic will cherish forever.
The theme of the yearbook this year is Uber, symbolizing the Class of 2019's four-year journey through high school.
A few new additions to the yearbook this year included several quotes from students and laser cutouts of the name of each senior.
"I am so proud of the yearbook staff and the beautiful book we created,''said Mrs. Sagendorf. "The book is a true reflection of their passions, talents, and skills. Their collaborative efforts really made the book shine, and we are hoping the faculty, staff, and students love it as much as we do!"
The Yearbook Staff blended all their various skills together to form more than 200 pages of memories that will last a lifetime.
Degnan said the Yearbook Staff made sure to include as many students as possible, and she's confident everyone will like it.
"We made sure we included as many students as we could because everyone wants to see themselves in the yearbook,'' said Degnan. "So we got as many photos as we could of as many students as we could. As for putting together the yearbook, we all had different responsibilities and all the different skills we have really came together and made this a great yearbook. We are confident that everyone will really like it.''
