AHSneedle reaches 1000

By Josh Schorle

AHSneedle.com has been publishing stories online since Sept. of 2010. Since that day, the journalism department has published 1,000 stories in about two and a half years.

Our first story published online was entitled “Positive Behavior Rewarded” written by AHS graduate Heather Harris.

AHSneedle.com was started in efforts to move the journalism department into the 21st century. Publishing online gives us the ability to be current and makes our news delivery more meaningful to students.

The 1000th story was published by senior Kallee Mudd about ITEDS hitting AHS, but the journalism department wasn’t aware of the 1000th post until two days later. Mudd said, “I think that’s a pretty cool achievement! Writing stories for the Needle certainly has its challenges, but once it’s up, you can’t help but feel good.” She adds that her favorite stories included her story on Premiere’s new choreographer and her “Hands” slide show.
