Liberty Christian School’s 2013–2014 yearbook, “Define Time 20:14” received recognition for excellence and was featured in the 2015 JostensLook Book” that celebrates the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage. 

“It is such an honor to be included in Jostens ‘Look Book,’” said yearbook advisor Vickie Morgan. “Every year, yearbook co-advisor Mrs. Woodall and I feel so blessed by the talented students God places in our classes.

“The students strive to design a book that is more creative, inspired, and memorable than the year before. Last year’s was no exception.”

The Jostens “Look Book” is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, cool covers, dazzling designs, relevant coverage, storytelling copy, and action-packed photography.

“Because we are a Christian school, our desire is that the yearbook not only portrays student life at Liberty, but also reveals Jesus Christ to the reader,” added Mrs. Morgan.

Along with design excellence, the annually published “Look Book” honors the important role that well-crafted yearbooks play in helping schools chronicle the experiences, stories, and achievements most relevant to students and that academic year.

With direction from Mrs. Morgan and Mrs. Woodall, “Define Time 20:14” was created by yearbook editors Savannah Cothes, Lissie Kevlin, and Megan McDivitt, along with yearbook staff members Simone Allen, Megan Borth, Raegan Cole, Hannah Dickson, Jacob Fife, Jackson Fountain, MacKenzie Gallagher, Austin Gibson, Ashley Good, Morgan Harrison, John Paul Kosub, Kennedy Niewolny, Jordan Person, Sydney Sisk, Caroline Stephens, Victoria Tracy, Jamie Whelan, and Heather Willet.

“The editors, along with fellow student Sydney Gresham, came up with the idea of Define Time,” said Mrs. Morgan.

“Their thought process was that time is totally different for a 3-year-old than an for 18-year-old. At Liberty, we are unique in that our school teaches children from age 3 to 18. It is a huge blessing to cover all of these ages in our yearbook.”

Last year’s yearbook had 376 pages with an additional 44-page supplement. Mrs. Morgan ordered 1,400 copies of the yearbook, one for every student.

Liberty’s yearbook “Define Time 20:14” was one of only 476 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. The 2015 panel of judges, comprised of nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award-winning yearbook advisers, selected the best examples of yearbook spreads and covers to make up the 344-page 2015 “Look Book.”

“Yearbooks are unique, limited edition books created by students to capture the stories and events for all of the school’s students, and Jostens is proud to celebrate the yearbook tradition and the 476 yearbooks selected for the 2015 JostensLook Book,’” said Gary Lundgren, editor of the “Look Book.” “Today’s yearbooks are very sophisticated in visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured.”

Mrs. Morgan, Mrs. Woodall, and their yearbook staff received a copy of the 2015 Jostens “Look Book” and certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.

The Jostens “Look Book” is a must-have resource for yearbook advisers and staffs seeking creative design and coverage ideas, trends, and inspiration.
