Six yearbook and newspaper students and adviser Steve Hanf participated in the recent online journalism camp offered through the NC Scholastic Media Association out of Chapel Hill.
June graduate Emmy Trivette, who served as co-Editor-in-Chief of Nighthawk News this past school year, received her $1,000 scholarship from the North Carolina Press Foundation for being named an alternate in the NCSMA Journalist of the Year competition. Trivette’s portfolio was among four in the state recognized with the scholarship, marking the fourth straight year an FFHS student has either won or placed in the competition.
In addition, adviser Steve Hanf received NCSMA’s Kay Phillips Distinguished Service Award after serving as the NCSMA Advisers Association president this past year and teaching at various NCSMA journalism workshops throughout his teaching career.
Students combined to win numerous individual awards in the statewide media contest. Nighthawk News Magazine and NighthawkNews.com each earned Tar Heel awards as among the best high school publications in the state.
