Holman earns top national newspaper ranking for fourth year in a row
Thursday, May 9, 2019
The Holman Pirate Times, the student newspaper at Holman Middle School, was among the top-scoring middle school student publications in the American Scholastic Press Association’s Scholastic (ASPA) Newspaper Awards for 2019. This is the fourth consecutive year that Holman topped this national list of award-winning middle schools.

Holman earned second place, which was the highest award for a middle school in 2019. The school tied with three other middle schools in the U.S., as no middle schools earned enough points to receive a first-place award this year. The contest includes categories for middle school, high school and college publications.

Holman's newspaper is produced by the after-school Newspaper Club. Members are Nolan Ballard, Grace Burke, Syeda Urooj Fatima, Sydney Hoynacki, Matt Jacobi, Breon Jones, Gabrielle Kellner, Romero King, Gavin Lingle, Talisa Prabhu, DonMonique Simpkins, Sophia Tabers and Jessika Williams. Their sponsor is Glenn Changar.
