This summer some members of the yearbook staff are attending the Georgia Yearbook Workshop at the Great Wolf Lodge in LaGrange, Georgia from June 2 to June 4. The next year’s editors and some new staff members will attend this summer camp to get ideas for next year’s book. “I am very excited to get to know next year’s staff and brainstorm ideas for the 2019-2020 yearbook,” said junior and editor-in-chief Jaylen Smith.  Some of the things they will expect to experience in the workshop include theme presentations, design trends, photography, coverage inspiration, and crucial staff planning time.

The Legend staff also has some two new photographers joining them next year as well.  The new photographers will take a photography track while at the camp to learn different techniques and how to photograph for yearbook. This camp is a chance for the staff to get more ideas, bond with each other, but most importantly have fun. 

The staff will arrive a day early to go to the Great Wolf waterpark before their workshop activities begin. They also have the option to explore the indoor fun area which will include a ropes course, rock-climbing wall, bowling alley, arcade and mini-golf games.

Adviser Shanon Woolf has been invited by Jostens to speak on how McIntosh Student Media uses social media to help tell stories from the school.  “I am proud and excited that as a first-year adviser they think enough of me to ask me to speak to other advisers to help them with their programs,” says Woolf.  Woolf was also the Georgia Scholastic Press Association’s First-Year Adviser of the Year for 2019.
