The Wildcat Chronicle, Community High School's student newspaper, has won two national awards recently for newspaper excellence.

Other newspaper staff include: photo editor Jessica Myers, reporter Brittany Rose, features editor Kyle Bullis, reporter Bridget Geraghty, reporter Michelle Loerzel, special sections editor Anna Nubie, reporter Logan Schrage, perspectives editor Melissa Stevens, sports editor Elliott Tinnes, reporter Brandi Bodie, reporter Jaclyn Demes, reporter John Jennings, reporter Tyler Linck, reporter Jeanine Macrito, reporter Ian Rewers, reporter Amanda Tollas, reporter Nicole Klingfberg, reporter Sarah Kuna, reporter Greg Moore, reporter Larry Petrie, and reporter Carly Tuma.
Editor-in-chief Stephanie Bodane said, "I am very proud of my staff for what they have developed within the school. We have a very professional paper with a hard-working staff, which makes the awards even more rewarding. I know that through the next few years, it can be expected that we will be welcoming many more awards and recognition. Overall, I believe that our paper is something the school and community should be proud of. We have come long way," she added. English teacher Laura Kuehn is the Chronicle's faculty adviser.
