The Darby Legacy yearbook, Ins & Outs, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the Jostens Look Book 2021, celebrating the best of the best in yearbook design and inclusivity. The Jostens Look Book is a collection of outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, cool covers, beautiful designs, relevant coverage of school events, meaningful storytelling, and stunning photography. Along with design excellence, the annually published Look Book honors the work of the students who create the yearbook over the course of 6-12 months.

Ins & Outs was created by current Editors Elizabeth Mak, Rachael Wagoner, Jordan Garey, and Faith Garwood as well as former Darby students Kayla Long, Shelbie Wargo, Jayde Martin, and Editors Amadea Zapotosky, Gigi Kast, and Laney Van Cleef under the direction of Kristi Stewart, Hilliard Darby High School’s yearbook adviser.

“We had so much fun creating this particular yearbook. Including “doodles” from the entire school and drawing on all the pages made for such a playful and personalized yearbook. I was very excited to share the Look Book with the staff members who helped build Ins & Outs,” said Stewart.

The Legacy was one of only 460 yearbooks selected from over one thousand yearbooks submitted. The 2021 panel of judges, comprised of nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award-winning yearbook advisers, selected the best examples of yearbook spreads and covers.

Kristi Stewart and her yearbook staff received a copy of the Jostens Look Book 2021 with a plaque and banner from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.
