Hawk Eye releases first print edition

Hawk Eye releases first print edition

Greydon Tomkowitz, Print Editor, Staff Writer

For the first time in five years, Hawk Eye is releasing a print edition featuring several articles chosen from the Hawk Eye website.

The Hawk Eye staff will distribute copies of the paper to homerooms in the near future.

This will be the first time the newspaper has been in print since the former high school paper, The Black Hawk Voice, went under due to low enrollment in the journalism class and a discipline issue among the paper’s staff.

Mr. Allemang, the Journalism class teacher, took over the paper, moved it online, and changed the name to its current Hawk Eye.

This year, under the new student staff, Hawk Eye returns to its roots and releases this print form of the online paper.

Featuring several articles that are from the online paper, the print edition also contains a selection of advertisements from local businesses that the Hawk Eye staff hopes will soon produce enough revenue to print the paper on a more frequent schedule.

After more than three months of trial and error on the website PageProdigy, the staff writers at Hawk Eye finally completed the tasks of choosing the articles, arranging them on the program, and seeking out ads.
