Newspaper is a great opportunity for Liberty. It’s a chance to get your voice heard, and persuade people that certain problems are either more or less relevant. Problems such as police brutality, racism, and animal cruelty. Everyone has their own views, and Newspaper is a good outlet. If you have a strong opinion in life, then newspaper may be a good class for you to take. It’s still a pretty new class, meaning more chances to try out different jobs/positions of journalism: treasurer, fundraiser manager, video manager, social media manager, and many more. It’s also an opportunity to develop something that is brand new. LHS Peak Press has only been around for almost two years now. This means that it’s a work in progress. Anything in the work in progress stage has many chances to change what doesn’t work, and to see what works and get more out of it.

Newspaper may seem all fun and games, but there is a level of responsibility. With all the perks, and duties, it’s very similar to a job. For instance, there is a required event coverage every month. For this, you simply show up to an event, take some great pictures/videos, and then type up an article of what happened. Now, Newspaper is still a new class in the sense that we don’t always know how to make things run smoothly. This can be both a burden and an adventure. It’s annoying when you show up to something and it’s not there, but at the same time you see minor problems that can be very fun to fix sometimes.

With this being a student ran class, there is going to be problems at times. Yes, most of it can be attributed to it being a new publication. We are kids, and not everyone can be a great leader and a perfect role model. But, our managers do a really great job at putting up a strong face in a situation that clearly anyone would break down and cry, even while they’re just as tired as the rest of us. Everyone has off days, and that’s okay.  While this may sound unprofessional, we’re a family. We trust each other, open up to each other, and work hard together.
