Congratulations Jobany! You’ve come so far—and just won $25,000 for college!” Sallie Mae post
Congratulations to the staff of Taylorsville High School’s newspaper, The Warrior Ledger. They were awarded first place among many other top-ranked scholastic newspapers in the nation by the American Scholastic Press Association (ASPA) earlier this month. The ASPA evaluates high school and college newspapers based on their coverage, design, creativity, and overall journalistic knowledge and ethics. This is the third year in a row that The Warrior Ledger staff is awarded first place honors in a row.
“This goes to show that all the hard work that goes into every issue we publish pays off,” said adviser, Stephanie Floch. “It is a great nod of encouragement as the year winds down and we go into our final production week of the school year.”

Congratulations to Jessica Taghvaiee -Taylorsville High School’s Gates Millenium Scholarship recipient for 2015. The award is given to 1,000 high schools seniors nationally out of tens of thousands of applicants. The scholarship can be used to pursue a degree in any undergraduate major and selected graduate programs at accredited colleges and universities.
For the second year in a row, The Warrior Ledger has earned a First Place award from the American Scholastic Press Association.

“We are ranked among the top high school newspapers in the nation, which is a huge honor to our awesome journalism staff,” said Taylorsville journalism teacher Stephanie Floch.
