The 2006 Hancock Middle-Senior High School yearbook has been chosen as a semi-finalist for the Yearbook Yearbook, a compilation of the finest school yearbooks published each year by the Taylor Publishing Company in Dallas, Texas. Of more than 1,500 yearbooks published annually by Taylor, only 15 percent are nominated as semi-finalists, and fewer are chosen to be featured in the book.
A panel of expert judges from across the country considers covers, endsheets and spreads of all the nominated yearbooks when making determinations of the finalists.
The yearbook advisor at Hancock Middle-Senior High is Tonya Stafford and the 2006 yearbook editor was Jessica Himes.
