Newsletter Editor Wanted

John Barton, Class of ’54 is resigning after having served as editor of the CHS Alumni Newsletter for 11 years. He is asking for someone to volunteer to take the reins as soon as possible to keep this form of communication to over 7000 subscribers active.

In his own words John writes:

I’m out-of-date, over the hill, ready to retire, and ready to give up this job that I’ve had for over 11 years. The major problem… I don’t connect well with younger readers.

We need someone to advance our beloved newsletter into the 21st century.

We need an editor on the same wavelength as our younger alumni — the millennials, generation X and Y, graduates of the last 40 years. Not someone from the Stoneage.

CHS has many alumni capable of writing and producing our newsletter, from retired school teachers, business people, journalists, wanna-be journalists, to retired engineers – like me. In fact, anyone with the desire can do this job. With the help of me and others, you will become an excellent publication editor in no time. All you need are typing and basic computer skills. You don’t even have to live in the Seattle area.

We need you to VOLUNTEER.

I’ll put out one more newsletter, and after that, the newsletter will fade away unless someone steps forward.

So, to my 7000 readers, we’re looking for one of you to take that step. This is a very rewarding job but we need new blood to make a good connection with our younger alumni.

John Barton, President
