Belvidere North’s journalism program honored

Belvidere North High School’s journalism program received some outstanding recognition Friday, Oct. 18, at the 50th annual Kettle Moraine Press Association’s (KEMPA) Fall Scholastic Conference at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

At the conference, which was attended by dozens of high schools from northern Illinois and Wisconsin, North’s 2012-13 North View newspaper yearbook received All-KEMPA honors, the highest achievement possible in competition. In comments, the judge said, “The North View contains some excellent writing & comprehensive coverage of Belvidere North High School. This paper is close to being one of the best!”

The co-editors of the 2012-13 North View were Danielle Harris, a freshman at DePaul University, and Conor Reilley, a freshman at Harvard College.

Also, North’s yearbook, the 2013 Equus, the North View, was awarded first place in its competition. This is the third year in a row that the Equus has placed first among yearbooks. The co-editors of the 2013 Equus were Kim Seger, a freshman at the University of Illinois, and Rachel Tripp, a freshman at UW-Whitewater.

Finally, Mike Doyle, adviser to the North View and Equus, was named to KEMPA’s Hall of Fame.
