The Mustang Messenger

About Us

Though young in the journalism scene, Kennesaw Mountain High School has brought forth a team of students who have a passion for journalism.

History

The Mustang Messenger first began in 2014 as part of a project.

In August 2015, it was resurrected into what it is today – a digital newsmagazine, available as a printed paper at the end of fall and spring semesters.

Bylines

All articles, graphics, photos, art, columns, pages, reviews, and other material creatively conceived–with the exception of staff editorials, cut-outs, and editorial photos–will be bylined with the producer’s name. All bylined writers will be held accountable for their work. When more than one person has contributed creatively to a piece of work, any person who has contributed to the work must be bylined as a producer.

Corrections Policy

When corrections have been made to a story, it will be noted at the end of the story along with the date and time the correction was made. 

Letters to the Editor

The newspaper staff welcomes letters from students, faculty, and community members as they give a constructive way for more people to express their opinions, criticisms, and reactions to school issues. The writer must sign the letter, and editors will make either personal or email contact before publishing to confirm that the name given is valid. If a letter has more than two people represented in the writing, there will be a main author credited with a byline for the supporters, but all must sign the letter before publishing with verification. The letters must be 250 words or less, and can be edited for grammar and content if necessary by the staff as long as the changes do not affect the meaning of the letter. Each writer will be contacted to make sure of this before publication. Due to limitations of space, the staff cannot guarantee that all letters will be published, but the staff will do its best to cover all topics fully. The letters to the editors can be given to Ms. Aughey in Room 314, or they can be sent to .
