  • Resourceful, aren’t they?

    At some point, we’ve all had to learn a skill.

    If you’re a student, you’ve had to learn how to write an essay or how to solve a math equation.
    If you’re in the work force, you’ve had to learn skills for your job.
    In my job, I had to learn how to take pictures and write (hopefully) compelling news and sports stories.
    I was lucky enough to attend school to learn these skills from some of the finest professionals around the country, with some of the best equipment.

  • Track team makes it without ‘luxury’ of facilities

    Last season, Washington County High School sent track athletes to the state meet for the first time in at least five years.
    Impressive, right?

    Add to the equation that those athletes, like all the other county track athletes before them, did it without the ‘luxury’ of proper facilities, and then their feat seems highly improbable.
    As  many athletics enthusiasts in the county know, it’s always been this way at Washington County High School.
