Gimpl is managing editor of Red Mountain's Roar Magazine, and Kocher is editor-in-chief of the school's Pinnacle yearbook. NSPA Honor Roll recognizes excellent student journalists and scholars who have served at least two years on a publication staff and maintain a GPA of 3.75 or higher.
"Nicole and Sarah have put a lot of time and effort into producing award-winning publications for Red Mountain High School, and both are so deserving of this honor," says Roar Magazine and Pinnacle adviser Jan Saquella. "I have no doubt they will be successful in their respective careers due to the experience they gained as publication editors."
Gimpl and Kocher's names will appear on the honor roll list in NSPA's annual "Best of the High School Press" publication.
