A Tradition Continues: Collecting Signatures at GHS Compass Night

On Tuesday, I attended the GHS Compass Night. This event was held at the high school between 6pm and 8pm, and was in the student center. There, you could get your Compass yearbook, and get it signed by your classmates.

Getting the yearbooks is a bittersweet moment. My friends and I were ecstatic to see how our senior portraits came out. The yearbook’s job was to reminisce about all the things that happened during the year, and it succeeded in that.

This year’s Compass yearbook, remarkably, is quite different than the 2013-2014 Compass yearbook. One difference is that in this year’s, the class photos go by descending order (as in starting with seniors and ending with freshman).

Something I thought was a very nice touch were the pages before the photos that chronicle the accomplishments and experiences of each grade this year. The SRO pictures from the year are awesome, and really highlighted the occasion.

If you missed Compass Night, you can pick up your yearbooks in Student Activities at or purchase one for $75.
