The Delphi

About

Started in 1964, Delaware Valley Regional High School’s newspaper, The Delphi, has been covering the news for the Del Val community for over 5 decades.  The paper’s name was selected in 1968 as part of contest in which the student body voted on the best submission. Since its formation, The Delphi has cycled through multiple advisors and plenty of staff members, all of whom have held the same goal: to report the news to the Del Val community. The Delphi has published news articles, opinion columns, horoscopes, polls, short stories and more over the course of its history, and it hopes to rekindle this long-held tradition of spreading the news and culture to its readers.

The ever-evolving world of technology and digital news media has pushed The Delphi and its staff to evolve with the times. As of the 2018-19 school year, The Delphi took on a new identity as an internet-based publication.  This new publication platform was spearheaded by c0-editors Clare Erwin and Gabriella Maffie with the aid of The Delphi staff and its new advisor, Mr. Brian Smith.

Since its redesign, The Delphi has expanded rapidly.  As of 2018, The Delphi began hosting its first podcast, Dark History, produced by Sarah Nerwinski, and the staff is hoping to expand its podcast production in the coming years.

Although it began experimenting at the end of 2018, as of 2019 The Delphi has a growing social media presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  The staff regularly publishes content through its many outlets, posting its Twitter content on televisions throughout the school and to Del Val’s television channel on Service Electric Cable Television. In 2019, the staff began “live-tweeting” various sporting events so that the community can keep up with the scores and big plays of Del Val’s various team’s big games. There are more plans to expand the paper into a full-fledged news show, and it is only a matter of time until the newspaper expands into the world of broadcast journalism.

The Delphi is looking to expand its horizons to include articles from contributing writers, comic strips and other forms of publications in order to honor the rich history of its past.  The Delphi has extended into a club for the 2019-20 school year in order to achieve this goal. If you are interested in becoming part of The Delphi staff, please reach out to Mr. Smith at thedelphi@dvrhs.k12.nj.us or sign up to take journalism next year!
