I was lucky enough to guide a team of young student journalists while they created a weekly publication. Below, are the diligent young journalists who were writers, contributors, researchers, and photographers who succeeded in publishing 28 editions of the school newspaper.

Role of the Editors

When working on a student publication, student editors only need a little bit of direction in order to accomplish ambitious articles. They can delegate tasks with their peers and make their work efficient. Below is a list of one of the checklists that I gave to our student editors. This document lays out our short term direction and specifies achievable targets for upcoming issues of the school newspaper.

This section focused on any updates, announcements, changes, or initiatives that would be important to our school community.

This section gave seniors the opportunity to spotlight the successes of their friends who had recently gotten into prestigious colleges or received scholarships.

This section was dedicated to the hard working clubs and organizaitons that gave back to the community throughout the school year.
