Buy A Senior Tribute for the 2018-2019 Yearbook!
We know you are so proud of your teen’s accomplishments. Tell them how great they are by purchasing a Senior tribute in the Smithville High School yearbook.
Use a tribute to congratulate your graduating Senior or even acknowledge a special academic or athletic achievement during the school year. An ad in the yearbook allows you to recognize your Warrior with photos and words. While the yearbook lets your student remember all the special people and events from
the school year, the personal touch of an ad will make the book that much more special for them.
Senior tributes are available in a variety of sizes and prices. Tributes are easy to order through
If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to contact the yearbook staff at
Danielle Martin
Adviser, Smithville Media Network
