    As a member of this class, you are also an active member of the TrottyVeck staff, Leechburg's award-winning high school newspaper is a fully on-line digital newspaper. Throughout the year, we will learn how to write specifically for news media, which can at times differ greatly from your normal English class writing. We will deal with writing various types of media, including both news and feature stories, as well as look at how advertising works in print media.
     
    All members of the class/TrottyVeck staff are required to write at least two articles per month. Additionally, other assignments both in class and out of class will be assigned.
     
    And...Don't forget to check the Veck!
