Snag that EHS Yearbook

Snag that EHS Yearbook

As Encinal High School’s publication design instructor Joshua Linville thought about all that the class of 2020 would miss out on, he realized their was one time-honored tradition they could still celebrate: the yearbook. With the Horizon staff completing the book and sending it off for publication, Linville reached out to the Alameda community.

“I thought that some families have been hit hard by this virus and may not be able to afford a book,” said Linville. “In such a unique year, every senior should be able to have a yearbook.” 

A call out to the community saw more than 20 families step forward to donate a yearbook for seniors who can’t afford one. In addition, Encinal’s Parent-Teacher-Student Association agreed to make a sizeable donation as well, ensuring that every senior would be able to get a book.

“It is amazing to see the support of the community” said Linville. “But that is Alameda. I couldn’t imagine a more supportive place to teach.”

Encinal’s yearbook is scheduled to arrive mid-June.

If someone from the general Alameda community would like to support this effort and supply a yearbook for a low-income family, contact Linville at
