CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

A pair of University of Virginia students is leading the effort to bring the school's yearbook back to life. Corks and Curls began publication in 1888 and ran for almost 120 years before production stopped in 2009 for budget reasons.

Now there's a new movement to create a book for next year. Second-year students Carly Buckholz and Michael Buhl say there is a strong student interest to bring it back.

“UVA is very much a place of tradition and a yearbook is often able to captivate that tradition and preserve it for years to come,” said Buckholz.

UVA's Alumni Association has helped the students contact former Corks and Curls staff. The alumni group will fund the startup costs for the revival effort.

Right now more than $15,000 have been raised to go towards the new edition.
