The Washington Post
The Falconer is the student newspaper of Fauquier High School. I am responsible for brainstorming story ideas, editing opinion and sports stories, writing content, updating our website, Tweeting news, posting pictures to Instagram, laying out pages, and preparing the paper for publishing. My work has also appeared in Young D.C., The Fauquier Times, and The Gainesville Times. My work has been recognized at state, regional, and national levels by Scholastic Art & Writing, Virginia High School League, Sports Illustrated for Kids, and Time for Kids.
