Tyler Melton, CJE

Helping Alabama schools create great Yearbooks!


Tyler’s journey to the world of yearbooks began in college where he was a 1997 graduate from the Troy University Hall School of Journalism. After 10 years in a corporate job he joined the Jostens family in 2008. Tyler enjoys utilizing his journalism and business backgrounds to help schools tell their story in the yearbook which he sees as an outlet for student creativity where they can learn key technical and life skills in journalism, design and business. In 2013 Tyler earned the Certified Journalism Education recognition from the Journalism Education Association.

Don’t be afraid to make a change

When I switched to Jostens (2014) I was very nervous. I have been a yearbook sponsor for over 15 years, and I enjoyed knowing that the program I was using was familiar to me. Tyler Melton had visited me for a year or two, but I was reluctant to make a change to a new company. I finally decided to make the change. I am SO glad that I did! I am extremely happy with Jostens and more importantly…with Tyler as our representative. Don’t be afraid to make a change.

I have known Tyler for several years now since he became our rep. Tyler is a person of high integrity. As a professional, he holds certification in journalism and is very knowledgeable in computer technology, design, and marketing. From a financial view, I love being able to use our profits to provide yearbook college scholarships; I’m sure Tyler has a program that will work for you too.” Marilynn Ward, Woodland High School

Tyler is a dedicated journalist

From these experiences, I can say with confidence that Tyler is a dedicated ­­­­­­­­journalist who guides advisers and leads yearbook staffers. In doing so, Tyler has set a strong example for us with his degree of effort and intensity in sales, design, and technical expertise. Tyler’s drive and pursuit of excellence is clearly evident privately in the advisory guidance arena and publically in yearbook staffing activities. Kimberlie N. Walker, Beauregard High School
