Did you know Fred “Mr.” Rogers was a Quill and Scroll member? Greater Latrobe High School in Pennsylvania, class of 1946. And Roger Ebert, the famous film critic? Urbana High School in Illinois, class of 1960. And Debra Messing, the star of “Will and Grace,” was a Quill and Scroll yearbook member, initiated in 1983 from East Greenwich High School in Connecticut.
As a Quill and Scroll alumnus, you’re familiar with the benefits of high school journalism programs. By taking a few minutes to fill out the short survey form below, you can provide information that will help Quill and Scroll increase support for, and participation in, scholastic journalism. Head over and “Like” our Quill and Scroll Alumni Page on Facebook to stay in the loop, too.
You can also subscribe to our blog, The Weekly Scroll, which is published every Thursday between late August and late May.
We’d also love to hear about any professional or personal accomplishments you’ve had, whether in journalism, another field, or in life!
Quill and Scroll can create an alumni directory for your chapter
Planning a fundraiser for your school’s journalism program? How about an anniversary of your chapter or some other big event? Maybe you just want to identify some “big names” from your chapter’s past to invite as guest speakers?
Quill and Scroll has a record of every single person inducted into the organization since its founding in 1926. That’s more than 1.5 million people worldwide over the past 95 years.
If you’re a relatively new Quill and Scroll school or organization, then you likely already know all the names you’ve inducted over the past few years. But if you’ve had a Q&S charter for longer than that, we can help.
Here’s what you can do
Begin by emailing us at [email protected]. Simply let us know in that email what school you’re from and how soon you’d like a complete list of Q&S alumni from your school. All of our records from 1926 through 2004 are in paper form, so it takes some time to retrieve those from our files in the basement of the Adler Journalism Building.
Once you send the email request, we’ll get started putting together the list. When we’re done, we’ll invoice you based on a $50/hour rate. We anticipate most requests can be completed in less than four hours, though it may take us a few days to set aside time to complete the request.
You receive a list of members’ names, the year they were inducted, and an email for those inducted over the past decade. The rest is up to you!
Thanks for being an active Quill and Scroll chapter.
