The Park Press


The Park Press was originally founded in the 1976-1977 school year, Wheeling Park’s first year as a high school. The Press produced news until it was mostly discontinued in 2008, fully stopping production in 2015. But as of the 2022-2023 school year, it has been back up and running.

Last year, the Press had 13 members. This year, the staff has jumped to 32 students taking part in Journalism classes I and II. Students in the Press are encouraged to conduct interviews, get quotes, and find new information for their articles daily.

In addition to a monthly print edition and a website full of even more published articles, the Park Press also produces podcasts! Using equipment in the new ILC, our writers turned to talkers and our readers turned into listeners!

Additionally, our program received the First-Time Convention Grant through the Journalism Education Association (JEA). Two of our reporters and our advisor will be attending the JEA National Conference in Boston in early November where they will collaborate with other students from around the country in various journalism workshops.
