Kieren Tucker (’27) took journalism this year and is excited to move to the yearbook class next year.

It’s that time of year! Summer break will be here in no time, and students will soon approach a new school year coming around the corner. When requesting classes for your future school year, it’s important to choose classes that are not only best for your interest but also for your success.

Luckily North Point offers amazing publican classes consisting of Journalism, Broadcast Media, and Yearbook.

These classes provide all things students will use almost daily in the future. From Writing, photography, communication, ethics, videography, interviewing, fact gathering, to graphic design. A good school publication contributes more than just learning how to write but helps with the ability to strive to discover why people feel as they do about an issue at hand. Many join this class in the hope of meeting credit requirements instead of in the hope of expressing ideas.

“You should join publications because it really is a family and I wouldn’t trade the friends I made for anything. Seeing all your hard work come together at the end of the year is an amazing feeling. We pour our hearts and souls into the books,” Maggie Wallace said (’25).

If you choose to join Yearbook you get the opportunity to create a historical memory for all the students around you. You get to experience the joy of capturing heartfelt memories of others and then putting them together along with designs and quotes, to showcase your work to your peers.

“Getting to see your work at the end of the year is one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever feel. There are hundreds of hours put into that book, between yourself, your classmates, and your advisor. Seeing that work in a physical form is breathtaking and leaves me so excited and emotional. Publishing your work is the happiest feeling ever,” Vanessa Jennerjohn said (’24).

Publications help students develop better time management. A story, video or photo gallery doesn’t just happen. Students are forced to learn planning, besides the other extracurricular activities they enrolled in. 

“You should join journalism classes because you can learn so many new life skills and have a better high school experience. Now that my high school trip is over, I have been able to look back and enjoy all of these classes I took, and might have even taken more,” Dawson Schriewer said (’24).

Overall publication classes help you succeed with leadership. You learn to take a stand for what you feel strongly about and release that information through articles, interviews, podcasts or even speeches. Publications give you a chance to grow your self-confidence as you start new beginnings and look into conflicts & celebrations within our school.
