Loveland High School’s (LHS) student newspaper, The Roar, has received an International First Place Award in the 2013 International Awards for School News Media, sponsored by the Quill & Scroll Honorary Society for High School Journalists. First Place Award winners are rated as having made “superior achievement.” The award covers work done during the 2012-13 school year.
"An award of this caliber from such an esteemed organization should serve as notable public acknowledgement of the talent and dedication of the students whose cooperative efforts produce the extraordinary news publication that is The Roar at Loveland High School,” said Chris Kloesz, LHS principal. “Congratulations to this outstanding journalistic staff!"
The following students comprised The Roar’s staff last school year: Editors-In-Chief Bridget Landis and Jenna Myklebust; fellow 2013 graduates Matt Becker, Andrew Bessey, Mitch Casperson, Laura Doppler, Mallory Jackson, Danny McManus, Ryan Moss, Erin Pogue, Carla Weismantel, and Maddie Whitaker; and current seniors Megan Day, Sydney Dudley, Brad Faust, Sarah Goldenberg, Rachel Griswold, Kayla Herrmann, Mackenzie Johnson, Anne Lehmann, Darby Moloney, Ricky Mulvey, Anna Niemeyer, and Erin Richmond. Neil Schmidt served as faculty adviser.
In its evaluation, Quill and Scroll wrote, “You obviously have an extremely dedicated staff that cares about the quality of the product you’re delivering to the audience. You're also more advanced than most publications because you’re harnessing a mixture of print and online media to reach students.”
