Colorful plans for Pioneer staff

The first ever BHS yearbook was made in 1914 with the name “Pioneer.” Ever since, Baldwin has kept the name. Little did we know that years later, we would be in a global pandemic 

“Personally, I think Covid has affected the staff’s ability to work on the pioneer,” sophomore editor Kate Nichols said. “With half of the kids not in school, it’s a difficult process to work on our yearbook. But it’s not stopping us from creating an awesome yearbook that all the school will love.”

The Pioneer staff consists of 24 students, and adviser Kit Harris.

“We have multiple ideas for the theme but our biggest idea is that the cover theme should be very colorful and try to tie in how the year is different,” senior editor-in-chief Ambrynn Stewart said.  

Nichols gave the same idea of a very colorful and bright theme, she also added that “some ideas for the theme and cover this year were things like we are all in this together, diary of a wimpy kid, and high school musical.”

The group works on getting good pictures, making layouts, and getting their assignments done. 

“There are less opportunities to shoot photos, less activities to create pages for, and taking photos of people with masks just isn’t the same because of the lack of facial expression you can see,” sophomore club editor Carly Armbrister said. 

“Color is always better than no color,” Armbrister said.
