Newspaper

The Mill Creek High school newspaper has won many awards during its circulation. The newspaper's original name was "The Current." This was followed by the slogan, "The Current, where the news always flows." This title for the newspaper only lasted from the opening of Mill Creek (2004) until 2005. Mill Creek's mascot is the Hawk, so the paper was then titled "The Hawk Print." In the statewide Journalism Banquet of 2007 "The Hawk Print" came in first place in "Best Art or Illustration," "Best Photography," "Best News Section," and "Most Improved." [10]
