SENIOR PATRON ADS - Due Feb. 8, 2020

A Senior Patron Ad is your opportunity to pair priceless photos with a personal message to express your pride in a special graduate.  These messages comprise one of the most popular sections of our yearbook. Family members—parents/guardians, siblings, grandparents, aunts/uncles—are the most common sources of these messages, but we also welcome patron ads that celebrate long-time friendships, athletes/musicians who have played together since they were “kids,” students who grew up in neighborhood/elementary/church/scout groups, and more! Feel free to pass this info along to coaches, troop leaders, mentors, youth group leaders, etc.

Click here to see EXAMPLES of Senior Patron Ads from a previous year.

The link to order is available at: bit.ly/elhsyearbook. Please complete one form per ad. (Example: Joy's mother and grandmother would like to order a separate ad. Joy's mother completes a form and Joy's grandmother completes a second form. One student, two ads, two forms...)


We are always looking for photos of summer experiences, sporting events, extracurricular activities, performances, classroom assignments, community involvement, and students' achievements/adventures. Please send your photos to: eastlansingyearbook@gmail.com
