The Crusader Raid News is the student news of Helias Catholic High School of Jefferson City, Missouri. The news is created by Helias students involved in the Helias Journalism Club and in the Journalism I and Journalism II classes.
This is the 11th year the Helias Journalism Club has been in existence. The club and classes also Tweet articles and posts from their Twitter handle @CrusaderRaid. Additionally, the club and class produce a weekly video broadcast show, called the Helias Weekly Update, and post it on their YouTube channel, Crusader Raid News.
Every spring, Helias journalists compete and take classes at the Missouri Interscholastic Press Association’s “Journalism Day” at the University of Missouri, Columbia. Over the last five years, Helias journalists have been successful at winning top awards at this event.
Soon, the club and classes hope to venture into the world of live sports broadcasting.
