The Thespian One-Act Performed 
By Marshall Cunningham
Thursday, the Thespian Troupe made its way to Russellville High School to perform its One-Act play The Nine Worst Breakups of All Time.
The group got ready at school after lunch and left at 2:00. By 4:00 they performed the play, and it turned out fairly well. Many of the members felt good about the performance, though many are still worrisome of the final outcome. 
Last year’s One Act, Check Please!, got the rating of “Good” at this festival due to the troupe adding improv to the play. However, this year they made sure to stick to the script and act to the best of their abilities. 
No word has been given on when the ratings will be released. Likewise, no more festivals or plays are seen in the Thespian Troupe’s future. The only upcoming performance from CCS is that of Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Mariner’s Wraith in March.

Welcome to The Daily Talon

By: Marshall Cunningham

This year, the Conway Christian Upper School has started a new project: a school newspaper.

This new addition to the school’s lineup will be quite different from other clubs, organizations, and events. The newspaper is being run by Mrs. Anderson’s Journalism class. Blake Belcher, Emilie Williams, and Marshall Cunningham write the stories whilst Mrs. Anderson proofreads them for publication. Together, they form a majority of the work behind The Daily Talon.

The reasoning for this addition comes from a long desire and need for some sort of informative media. In the past, all students had was The Eagle Weekly, a weekly newsletter detailing a few small announcements and game schedules. Likewise, Mrs. Shelton created the Press Club a few years back in an effort to take the school’s most talented writers and get them making stories for the local paper, The Democrat-Gazette. However, as the years went on, fewer and fewer students found interest.

Now, however, the journalism class provides a perfect opportunity for this much-needed idea to grow and flourish. As of right now, all articles are being posted under a new section of the CCS website, aptly named The Daily Talon. Once a large selection of articles have been written, plans to create a paper copy should go into effect.

At its heart, The Daily Talon strives to unify the constantly shifting and overly hectic path that is student life. By bringing out events, highlighting students and teachers, and keeping the entire student population informed, the paper hopes to shape CCS for the better. The Weekly Talon staff have both talent and dedication, doing all they can to make this newspaper the best it can possibly be. Thus, as both a team and school, excellence is the only way forward.

On behalf of the entire Daily Talon team, we say thank you for reading and we hope that, no matter the day, you enjoy.
