The Resurrection of The Sting

Jessica Williams, Contributor

After almost a decade the Azle High School Newspaper, “The Sting,” has come back full force with Mr. Corbett’s Journalism class. The journalism students have worked together on a variety of stories in order to make the newspaper a reality. There was a failed attempt earlier in the year, but Journalism teacher, Neil Corbett, was not discouraged. He had planned another attempt towards the end of this year and it is destined to be a success.

Corbett is super excited for the newspaper.

“I’m really excited about it,” Corbett said. “It’s been a long time coming and I can’t wait to see what it looks like. I am going to do my best to make sure it is a success.”

Journalism students are working hard on getting all the stories edited and typed out for the newspapers’ website, All students are divided into groups and helping each other with their stories.

Editor Aaliyah Peña has been working hard with her group to get all the interviews done along with editing her groups’ stories.

“I think it’s a really good way for students to write professional style stories about the school,” Peña said.

Peña is not only an editor but also a writer.

“I am working on an editorial about how IDs cost money,” Peña said. “I feel pretty good about being an editor. It’s probably the hardest part because we have to get all the stories and edit them ourselves, but overall, I feel good.”

Both teachers and students are confident about the newspaper and are excited about its big comeback. Corbett has worked hard on getting the newspaper’s website up and running along with getting students organized and set for the completion of their stories.

The newspaper will be released before the school year ends once all students have their stories in.
