Quill and Scroll International Honorary Society for High School Journalists was organized April 10, 1926, at the University of Iowa by renowned pollster George H. Gallup and a group of high school advisers for the purpose of encouraging and recognizing individual student achievement in journalism and academics. The organization has a Board of Trustees composed of eleven high school and collegiate journalism educators and media-related professionals. Fleetwood has held a charter since 1937 and in the past five years alone we have inducted roughly fifteen students each year from our four journalism organizations, Tiger Times Newspaper, Tiger TV, Tiger Tale Yearbook and Artifact Literary Magazine.
When a candidate is recommended for membership, the organization here at Fleetwood pays a one-time initiation fee. The Society then provides the initiate with an official membership pin, and a one-year subscription to Quill & Scroll magazine, along with access to countless scholarship opportunities.
Our members of Quill and Scroll Honor Society must be chosen from students enrolled in the high school who, at the time of their recommendation, meet the following requirements:
1. They must be of junior or senior classification.
2. They must be in the upper third of their class in general scholastic standing for the year of their election.
3. They must have done superior work in some phase of journalism or school media work.
4. They must be recommended by the adviser, supervisor or by the committee governing the media.
5. They must be approved by the Quill and Scroll Executive Director.
