A veteran teacher of more than two decades, Candy Birch has sponsored the newspaper at Olathe North High School in Olathe, Kan., since 1995.
In that time her staff has garnered numerous awards from Quill and Scroll International, Kansas Scholastic Press Association, and the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.
She has been an active member of the Journalism Educators of Metropolitan Kansas City organization. The Eagle newspaper that her 25-30 staff members produce is distributed 12 times a year on 11 x 17 newsprint, and has 16 or more pages per issue. Because she views her Journalism II class as a learning laboratory, every student on the staff covers beats, interviews subjects, writes news briefs, stories, columns, and/or editorials, sell ads, designs pages, and distributes the paper in school and through bulk mail.
