After the school year was cut short for kids across Michigan, a group of students in Detroit is getting creative to keep their end of the year traditions alive.
Teens in the D Broadcast Media Group are publishing a virtual yearbook for all metro Detroit high schoolers.
“Not having a yearbook as seniors is very troubling to them. They said it served as a second diploma because the yearbooks encapsulated everything they went through,” said Kenndall Wallace, a high school junior and contributing editor.
Teens In the D Broadcast Media Group decided their virtual yearbook project would be a perfect solution, allowing students in southeast Michigan high schools to get the yearbook they deserve.
“Grades 9-12 can email us and we send them a form to talk about their school – give us the contact information and everything about their school – and they can submit three pictures and then we put them in the virtual yearbook,” says interim volunteer director Barbara Kellom.
High school seniors are featured on a full page, and articles about key events like the COVID-19 pandemic will be featured.
