Southern Lehigh High School has something else to be proud of, school district superintendent Leah Christman told the school board recently.
Christman announced at a recent board meeting that the high school's student newspaper, "The Spotlight," has earned a silver rating from a group that judges the overall excellence of secondary school publications.
The Spotlight earned the recognition for its reporting during the 2012-2013 school year, Christman said.
The newspaper's faculty advisor is Marlo Spritzer.
"Its purpose is to present news relevant to Southern Lehigh High School and the Southern Lehigh School District, as well as to provide a forum for student opinion," according to a mission statement posted on the school district website.
