For the first time in school history, the WHS Charger received All-State distinction from the Kansas Scholastic Press Association for its news publication. Publications are judged on their body of work throughout the year, including coverage, reporting, visuals, design and leadership. KSPA describes an All-Kansas publication as one that demonstrates a solid understanding of the news publication and its purpose, features well-written copy, attractive design and storytelling photography, and that is obviously produced to serve readers.
