Yearbook advisor Mark Sosnowski credits student staff & community


ALMONT — Almont High School’s yearbook staff has been recognized with a 2022 Award of Excellence from Jostens, the leading producer of student-created content yearbooks.

Yearbook Advisor Mark Sosnowski said this year’s award-winning yearbook program was led by graduates Harrison Kasper, Sarah Hall and Alexis Krenzel.

Current yearbook editors for the 2022-2023 school year are seniors Mackensie Arms and Autumn Bletch.

Now in his 23rd year at Almont High School, Sosnowski has overseen the high school’s yearbook team for 19 years.

“I am very proud of our program earning this award,” Sosnowski said. “This is our third time earning a national award for excellence, and our fourth award overall during my tenure.

“Each year our yearbook celebrates the Almont High School community,” he said. “We strive to produce an inclusive yearbook that captures our students and great moments from each school year.”

Sosnowski added that the annual yearbook requires the participation of students, parents and the local business community.

“A high quality yearbook cannot be produced without a community effort,” he concluded.
