Northwest Horizons Online: A year in review


It’s no secret that news is moving away from a print-based format. As we have become increasingly attached to our electronic devices and our attention spans lessen, reporting is now more commonly produced in a digital format.

While Northwest Horizons publishes in print four times a year, we also maintain a website that is updated on a mostly daily basis. Throughout the 2017-2018 school year–especially toward the end– we’ve tried to strengthen our coverage with more video, creative graphic design and podcasts.

With the summer fast approaching, so too is the conclusion of this year’s coverage. With that in mind, these were some of the most popular website stories of this year.
