LHS Publications set a program record with 10 All-Missouri awards in addition to numerous other honors at Missouri Interscholastic Journalism Association’s annual Journalism Day conference on March 27 at Mizzou.

There were 1,066 students and teachers in attendance with about 50 schools present from across the state. More than 1,500 contest submissions were received.

“All four of our staffs – online, magazine, yearbook and broadcast – received either superior or All-Missouri for overall coverage, which is very impressive,” adviser Mr. Hall said. “It shows the commitment publications students have to their program and we are very proud of all of them.”
