Joplin High selling 2011-2012 yearbooks to general public


The Joplin High School Yearbook staff needs your help.  The high school says it ordered 200 extra books believing the community would be interested in buying them.

But the yearbook staff is stuck with another 200 books that students did not buy.

Students raised $11,000 last year for the production of the book.

They now have $20,000 worth of books left over.  They paid off that bill with current funds but want to sell these year books so they will be flush for the future.

"It's a cost that we have to make up," says Yearbook advisor Mary Crane.  "It's the best fundraiser that I can think of is to make these available to the public at large rather than do something that isn't meaningful.  This shows a lot of hard work and orchestration by all the staff members but it's also a good way for us to not penalize next years staff by having to make up the deficit."
