The St. Benedict High School Eagle’s Eye staff reigned in several prestigious awards in the Tennessee High School Press Association (THSPA) Award ceremony on March 4.

The newspaper was recognized as the Second Best Overall High School Paper in the State of Tennessee. And for the second consecutive year, the paper received the highest ranking of All-Tennessee Newspaper. In addition, an editorial cartoon, pictured here, appearing in the October issue about Halloween costumes available for girls and guys, received first place as the Best Illustration of an Editorial Subject. The editorial staff decided on the topic and cartoon slant and then sought out senior artist Chase Colling to provide the illustration. Finally, senior Editor Katie Akin received an Honorable Mention Award for Inside Page Design.

The SBA Eagle’s Eye is a regular recipient of these awards and many staff members pursue college degrees in journalism because of their experience at SBA.

The newspaper sponsor and teacher is Dianna Cervetti, who is in her ninth year. Newspaper is similar to yearbook, as it is a class that requires exams and grades. Along with meeting deadlines for print, staff members study and receive quarterly grades for their efforts.
