The Stall Street Journals are all written anonymously, but there are some clues to who writes them. Obviously this person pays attention to what is going on at school. The event times aren’t always accurate though the dates are usually correct. The author also cares about school spirit and helping others. The positive quotes usually are about important values such as kindness and perseverance. For example, this quote by Martin Luther King Jr. is about perseverance. “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do, You have to keep moving forward.” Another quote published in the Stall Street Journal is about caring for others. “My idea of Christmas, whether old fashioned or modern, is very simple: Loving others.”
The author also has enough time to do these every week, so it probably isn’t a principal. The author must have had permission from an administrator if they are a student because “Student newspapers, other publications that are school-sponsored, and other printed materials shall not be disseminated, distributed, or transferred without approval of the principal or his/her designee.” NCSD handbook, Student Publications.

It is likely that the Stall Street Journal isn’t written by only one author, but is a collaboration of many people. A quick inquisition in the office reveals that the Stall Street Journal is actually written by student council members supervised by Mr. Neely and Ms. Jensen. The Stall Street Journal is just one of the many ways that NC student council is making a difference at NC. Among other projects, they have organized the “Me to You Closet Competition” and the “Take What You Need” board for finals. Student Council is a student led service club.
