Pella High School students produced one of the best four year books in Iowa last year. “The Duchess” was named a Neubert Award winner, which is the highest ranking a book can receive in a contest sponsored by yearbook publisher Jostens. Students in Ann Visser’s Journalism class say they worked hard, but had fun putting the book together, and got some real-world lessons out of the experience, too. Visser says the award is an honor and a testament to the student’s dedication. She says over the years, her students have always tried to improve on previous years’ work to put out a yearbook the entire student body can enjoy.
