The Spotlight Newspaper

Watch for upcoming news and stories on our website. 

We’re recent graduates of Muscatine Community College in Iowa. This past year, we worked at the campus newspaper -- until graduation, but  we were harassed for doing  the job and our adviser was fired. So we filed a lawsuit. You can read more about it here .

But we’re not waiting around for a judge. We’re starting our own independent newspaper to cover the school and the community. Members of the Society of Professional Journalists have promised to match any donations up to $500. That’s enough to get the software we need and print our first issue.

Everyone who makes a donation will be thanked by name on our website and in our inaugural print edition this summer (but only if you want to). No donation is too small -- or too big.
