Grand County High School students and alumni can now browse through dozens of digital copies of the school’s yearbook dating back nearly a century, thanks to a new partnership between the school and web hosting site Skalooza.com.

Over the past year, GCHS librarian Carol Stephenson and a group of student volunteers have been involved in digitally scanning copies of Grand County High’s annual yearbook, “Mograndah.” Stephenson said the project was sparked by a donation from the classes of 1961 and 1962.  

The yearbooks are now available for online viewing at the GCHS page on Skalooza.com, www.skalooza.com/utah-grand-moab/grand_county_high/. A banner on the grandschools.org page also links to the site.

More than 50 previous GCHS yearbooks are available at the site. The earliest dates to 1919. A class photo from 1917 and a photo and graduation program from 1915 are also online. Yearbooks for 1921-1937, 1940-1941, and 1968 are missing. Anyone with copies of those yearbooks may contact Stephenson at 435-719-4861. The most recent yearbook available on the site is 2008.

The site hosting is paid for via links to online retail sites such as Amazon.com.

Although site users must first register to view the yearbooks on the Skalooza site, registration is free. Many other schools throughout Utah and other states also have their yearbooks on the site.
