When this year started, I was very excited to turn the school paper into something different. The magazine last year was great, and a lot of talented people worked on it. I knew when the seniors left that this year we had to overcome a lot of challenges; training a whole new staff of people is a difficult experience, but still an awesome one. We have what I believe is going to be a great staff with people who are diligent, hardworking, and have some fantastic ideas. One way we are going to try to improve the magazine/yearbook this year is by asking the student body what they want in their history of high school. We have created a Facebook page so that we can hear your ideas. Also, your 2011-2012 Publications class has changed the look of the magazine and tidied it up to look fresher and more modern. We hope you like what you see! What do you want to see in YOUR magazine? Submit story ideas, feedback, or comments to ghhssoundmagazine@gmail.com or on our Facebook page, GHHS Magazine/Yearbook.
