The Talawanda Tribune got its start in 2006 when English teachers Amy Young and Kalinde Webb organized a group of interested students and formed a club. The following year, through a series of grants and community donations, the Tribune had a few computers, an design program, and a belief–that news writing is an important part of a high school and the community in which it exists.
Soon, the school made room for a News Writing class that would teach students how to write, read, and think about current events around the THS and the world.
Over the years that followed the Tribune went through many changes, both in appearance and in style, ultimately sticking with a tabloid-sized paper that varies between 8 and 16 pages per issue.
The Tribune website was launched on Thursday, April 5, 2012.
