The Daily Talon

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.
