McKinley High School's student newspaper now offers online advertisements. If alumni would like to advertise their business and support scholastic journalism at the same time, check out the details at http://mhspinion.com/about/.
The first Pinion was published in 1920. That means that in October of 2020, The Pinion will be 100 years old. A great way to celebrate this milestone would be to digitize the archives.
It will be a big task. The bound books will need to be unbound, the pages scanned, then the books rebound. The older the issues, the more fragile and, in some cases, damaged, is the paper.
If you would like to help, please contact Cindy Reves, Pinion adviser, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can help in many ways. You can provide advice on how best to tackle this task. You could help by providing the equipment and/or workers. You could help by providing money for The Pinion to hire the job out.
Journalism is called the first rough draft of history. For The Pinion's 100th birthday, let's preserve that draft for posterity.

Alumni e-Pinion Available
To help us cut costs in printing and postage, we're making the Alumni Pinion available to Alumni Association members via email. But more importantly, the money used towards printing and postage is money that could be used towards more support of school programs (Robotics, JROTC, etc.) and student scholarships. In addition to helping us reduce expenses, an added benefit to you would be the instant gratification of receiving the Alumni Pinion via email instead of waiting for it via "snail mail." You will also get to view most of the pictures in color, whereas the pictures are black and white in print.
Subscribe to the e-Pinion now! (Reminder: You need to be a member of the Alumni Association to receive the Alumni Pinion - paper or electronic.)
The e-Pinion is sent as a PDF file which can be viewed using the free Adobe Reader.
