Instructor Tracy Anderson helps Grosse Pointe South students take their newspaper closer to the edge. “That’s great, you did it, you made it happen,” said Anderson. “Lets see what your next thing to perfect is.”

Following tradition, the senior staff of The Tower, Grosse Pointe South’s newspaper, are taking to MIPA’s Taking Your Newspaper to the Edge class to get their newspaper on track for next year . Using the advice and guidance of instructors C. E. Sikkenga and Tracy Anderson, they are doing what they can to make their weekly paper their own. “We’re all seniors, so we’re kind of the leadership team on the newspaper…we’re trying to learn to work together, and get our mojo,” Jane Hess (12, Grosse Pointe South) remarked.

Embracing that leadership, one staff member worked on a feature story on the rise of modern art in the city of Detroit, some retooled and updated older pages, and still others built new pages from the ground up. Whatever needed to be done, one of them was right there to get it going.

Their hard work doesn’t go unnoticed either. “Way better. Waaay Better….now you totally got it,” said an excited Tracy Anderson, advisor to Community High School’s newspaper, championing their efforts on a recently fixed up page, adding  “See, you guys gave me chills right there.”
