McLean High School newsmagazine honored by General Assembly

The General Assembly has added its congratulations to the staff of The Highlander, the student newsmagazine at McLean High School, for a string of achievements during 2017.

The student publication garnered  both the Pacemaker award from the National Scholastic Press Association and a Gold Crown from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association during the year, and received honors in  two categories of the National Scholastic Press Association’s Story of the Year contest.

The seven-times-per-school-year publication “has become known for its witty writers, strong reporters and outstanding photographers, designers and editors,” notes the joint resolution, patroned by Del. Rip Sullivan (D-48th) and approved by both houses of the legislature.
