"Journalism can never be silent: that is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault. It must speak, and speak immediately, while the echoes of wonder, the claims of triumph and the signs of horror are still in the air."
- Horace Anatole Grunwald
May 2020 Issue
The final issue of The Voice for the 2019-2020 school year
Farewell From the Editor
If the last few months have taught me anything, apart from how many loaves of banana bread I can bake before my family kicks me to the curb (to be determined), I have learned to anticipate the uncertainty of life. Yes, this may seem like a paradox, but I assure you it’s not. In fact, it’s what I’ve been attempting to do as long as I’ve been a journalist writing for The Voice.
Today, more than ever, the press is weathering a storm of criticism while navigating a sea of confusion. As reporters, we are obliged to follow the story, wherever it takes us. We must face the uncertainties of life head on. As journalists, we carry the responsibility to comfort, question, and seek clarity, especially when things are tough.
Thank you, SSSAS, for being the lifesource of The Voice: our relentless inspiration, our (if sometimes reluctant) readership, and our candid interviewees. Thank you for being open to journalism, the essential organ of a free society. In a world of increasing uncertainty, we must strive for a pursuit of the truth above all else.

Profiles of Grades:
A look back at life before Coronavirus
Before the sudden developments of COVID-19, the March issue of the voice was completed with four stories: Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors. Each one took a look at a different grade, profiling their unique perspectives and the biggest things on their minds. Hop in a time machine to about two weeks ago, back when we had no idea that all of our lives would be turned upside down.
