Newspaper gets a taste of gold

The publications department is made up of determined staff members who produce top-quality publications and who, as of late, have a new award to add to the wall.

The Columbia Student Press Association announced their 2013 Crown Award recipients on March 22, including a Silver Crown for the 2012 yearbook and their most prestigious award, a Gold Crown, for the newspaper.

Newspaper’s Gold Crown is the first to be won by Texas High, and was awarded based off the online website this year and the print issues from last year. In addition, the Tiger Times and is the only hybrid-class newspaper in Texas to win an award.

“The newspaper staff went above and beyond the past two years,” journalism adviser Rebecca Potter said. “Our online newspaper is still relatively new, so it’s an honor for it to be so highly thought of on a national scale.”

The newspaper has won three previous Silver Crowns for both print and online. The yearbook staff claimed its fourth.

“Our yearbook was very unique and eye-catching,” Potter said. “The cover was incredibly difficult and the design was sometimes nerve-racking, but we’re all very satisfied with the end result.”

Despite all the stress and the chaos involved with THS Publications, both staffs will continue to produce nationally recognized products.

“We have a lot of talented, younger students on both staffs,” Potter said. “I hope our trend of excellence will continue from here.”

About the Contributors

Taylor Potter, Co-editor in chief
As a singer, he’s horrible. As a dancer, he nauseating. As a journalist, he’s one of the three co-editors in chief. Senior Taylor Potter is entering his third year of writing for the Tiger Times, and his second year of bossing around younger staff members. He is a member of NHS, Quill and Scroll and is a 2013 Al Neuharth Free Spirit Scholar. While his singing, dancing, acting, fighting, whistling, snapping and gymnastics skills are mediocre, his ability to write and speak in a Batman voice is unmatched.
