Are you interested in pursuing a career in writing, journalism, or reporting? Newspaper is the place for you! The Ava Echo is in need of new recruits for next year, and we’re asking you, our readers, to sign up. The bulk of our writers are seniors this year, so by graduation we’ll only have three members left. You simply can’t run a newspaper with just three people, so we need as many new faces as we can get! If you’re worried about the workload, don’t be. We each write two to three stories per month, and at most those stories are a page long. Easy enough, right? Plus, two special people get to work on the print and online editions to keep them up to date.

The good thing about Newspaper is that you have the freedom to choose what you want to write about.”

— Rebecca Harris

We also have a person putting the announcements up on our website every morning. Newspaper is a pretty easy class, if you’ve got the work ethic for it, and we all have great memories here. It’s a fun class with plenty of interactive moments, and it’s a great opportunity to get ready for all the papers you have to write in college, especially when we get NoRedInk grammar assignments. Senior Rebecca Harris has this to say about Newspaper, “The good thing about Newspaper is that you have the freedom to choose what you want to write about.”

On the flip side of that, however, other senior Kaitlyn Rowe has said, “Sometimes we get so distracted with having a good time that we get nothing done!” So, while we do have a good time here, we try to not let it get the best of us. If this hasn’t convinced you of how awesome Newspaper is, then let it be noted that we sometimes have food parties. All in all, Newspaper is a great class that needs some new blood next school year!
