Helm is an award-winning yearbook that is produced every school year and distributed the following fall semester to full-time traditional students free of charge. Additional copies are available for purchase. Cindy Jacobs serves as adviser to the student staff.
The purpose of Helm is to document the history and capture the memories of each school year. The yearbook is united by one central theme and one passage of Scripture. Students interested in journalism, graphic design and photography work together as a team and develop their leadership skills while learning the various aspects of publishing. Specific tasks include assigning photos and stories, designing pages, writing and editing copy, selling advertising space and learning how to use the latest equipment and software in the business.
Helm is created by using sate-of-the-art equipment and software. High-end computers with InDesign CS2 and Photoshop CS3 enable the staff to stretch their creative abilities while learning important skills that will prepare them for the competitive world of media.
Students receive a stipend and a scholarship for positions held.
