Wylie East High School’s yearbook, The Dynasty, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2016 Jostens Look Book, celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage. The Jostens Look Book is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, cool covers, dazzling designs, relevant coverage, storytelling copy and action-packed photography. Along with design excellence, the annually published Look Book honors the important role well-crafted yearbooks play in helping schools chronicle the experiences, stories and achievements most relevant to students and that academic year.

The Dynasty was created by editor in chief Madison Jennings, assistant editor in chief Sophia Curiel, business manager Victoria Trevino, clubs editor Haleigh King, academics editor Camila Garcia, sports editor Jordyn Perry, assistant sports editor Jessica Blakeley, and copy editor Gwen Murphy under the direction of Casi Thedford, Wylie East’s yearbook adviser.
