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.


The Mustang Messenger first began in 2014 by founding ELA teacher, Dr. Deborah Aughey. We started out by creating a printable newspaper each month and delivering it to students.

In August 2019, our writings were transformed into a digital platform that is easily accessible to students, faulty/staff, and the rest of the Mustang community.

We currently have a staff of ten students and are led by ELA teacher, Coach Joely Shiver ([email protected]).
