Wednesday, November 16 - National Awards Given to RNE Students
The national individual awards in high school newspapers have been announced. Richland Northeast is very proud to say that only two high schools in South Carolina -- Northeast and Wando -- were represented in the results. Four of the five awards to South Carolina students went to Cavaliers.
