Donna Magana of Jostens Yearbooks
For more than twenty-five years Donna Magana has been involved in yearbook production in one way or another. It would be fair to say that yearbooks are her passion.

She then went on to major in Journalism at Sam Houston State University and worked on the Alcalde staff for four years, three of which she held the position of Editor in Chief while also contributing to the university newspaper, The Houstonian.
Upon graduation Donna went to work as a representative for a national yearbook publishing company and worked with schools in Dallas, San Antonio and Houston over the next nine years. After the birth of her second child she left publishing in order to spend more time with her children. But she immediately found her way back to a yearbook staff, advising her children’s pre-school and elementary yearbooks for the next eight years.
Donna joined Jostens in 2011. She lives in Katy with her husband and three children. In addition to supporting yearbook staffs at Houston area schools, she also serves as adviser to the Jo Ella Exley Elementary Express yearbook. Donna also loves to paint, sculpt and enjoys art of all kinds.
