Founded in 1962, the Rank & File newspaper is a public forum for students of George C. Marshall High School. The publication is written, edited, and designed entirely by students, who are responsible for all editorial and business decisions. Guidance and support is provided by a faculty adviser.
The unsigned staff editorials reflect the opinions of the Editorial Board, which consists of the managing editor and the editor-in-chief. Columns are the opinions of the writers and do not necessarily reflect the point of view of the newspaper as a whole.
Rank & File makes a Fair-Use claim when printing photographs and illustrations not produced by staff members.
Letters to the editor are welcome and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or hand-delivered to Room 225. Letters should be signed for author verification, and names will only be withheld under special circumstances, pending the approval of the editors. Rank & File does not accept letters that are libelous, obscene or disruptive to the learning process. Rank & File reserves the right to edit any letter for length or style and/or to eliminate inappropriate statements.
