Yearbook Senior Tributes
Senior Tributes for 2021 Yearbook – As everybody knows, the Class of 2021 has not had the senior year they all imagined. From online learning to virtual pep rallies, students have certainly not experienced the senior year they expected. However, there is still one tradition enduring the unknown circumstances of this school year. Senior tributes are one part of senior year that you can count on through photos and written sentiments. In these unpredictable times, make sure to remember and encapsulate this time in your senior’s life. Take this opportunity to recognize his or her accomplishments with a personal tribute in the 2021 edition of the Spring Valley yearbook, Saga. This yearbook is one of the few celebrations of the Class of 2021, let your student remember all the special people and happenings from high school. Personal tributes are available in a variety of sizes and prices.
