NB Student Media

Welcome to the NB Student Media Website. Our program is in its 3rd full year of production. NB Student Media includes our bi-weekly broadcast BHB and our student publication the Hilltopper Yearbook. Scroll down to see a slide show of photos AND to hear from a few of our graduates about why our journalism program is so awesome! Thanks so much for stopping by!

SPRING 2022 - It's competition time! Right now all of our students are working hard to get our publications and broadcasts contest ready. We will be submitting our work (yearbook and best news episodes) to THREE different contests this year: NSPA (National Scholastic Press Association), SIPA (Southern Interscholastic Press Association), and NCSMA (North Carolina Scholastic Media Association). We are so excited to have an audience for our work and to learn from the critiques that the judges give us.

Fall 2021 Staff
