Who we are

Friends of The Spoke is an organization dedicated to defending the rights of student journalists at The Spoke and nationwide. The organization was founded in June 2009 by current and former editors of The Spoke, the student newspaper of Conestoga High School in Berwyn, Pa., to oppose proposed policies that would have led to censorship of the paper. After five months of discussions, press coverage and widespread local and national support, the district changed its proposal, replacing it with one that correctly identified and defined today's legal standards. 


Now, Friends of The Spoke is focused on two goals: keeping the community — students, community members, alumni and state and national journalism organizations — informed about the latest news from The Spoke, and providing journalism programs facing censorship with resources to help aid their campaign.
