Turner Ashby High School

Home of the Knights


Big picture
Each year the school publishes a yearbook, The Crag, named for Turner Ashby’s home. The Crag preserves in words and pictures a record of the full year and is delivered to students in September. Each year The Crag is entered in competitions in the Virginia High School League and Columbia University. An editor (or co-editors), photography editor, and business manager for the next school will be selected by the adviser at the close of each school year.

Students wishing to produce the yearbook enroll in Photojournalism I, II, III, and IV. Students enrolled in Photojournalism I learn the basics, the fundamentals, and the requirements for creating a solid journalistic piece. This class works with the TA Knight Times and the “Etc.” supplement in The Daily News Record. Students enrolled in Photojournalism II, III, and IV continue to use their skills to create the yearbook.

Opportunity exists for students to pursue interests and develop skills in photojournalism, layout, design, copy writing, journalism, business, and clerical work. Also, staff members and advisers are invited to participate in summer workshops conducted by Herff Jones Publishing Company.
