Published June 4, 2015 - NEW HAVEN, Mo. - Throughout the past school year, QuickNewsNow owner, Kyle Quick, has been working with New Haven High School’s principal, Josh Hoener, about their new journalism class taking over the QNN website after Quick approached him about donating the site to the school district.

Quick stated, “After deciding to cut back on the amount of news we covered, I began talking with Josh about my decision and the idea I had of giving it to the school.  I wanted to make sure all the articles we had published would still be easily accessible, but at the same time for New Haven to still have a local news source.”
