Galway students publish sports magazine

GALWAY – This year, the Galway Central School District’s student-run Village Press published its first sports magazine, Eagle Eye: A Season’s Review.

“The idea to produce a sports magazine came about due to the interests of the business interns Paige Galloway Hammond and Jessica Demarest who coordinated the project,” business teacher Mark Swain said in a news release. “Paige is interested in a career in sports business and Jessica is interested in a career in publishing. It’s another example of offering our students real-world experience.”

The two interns produced the fall 2012 issue that sports a glossy four-color cover with mostly black and white photos on its 32 pages except for the centerfold featuring four-color homecoming photos. The magazine highlights the school’s fall varsity athletics: cross-country, golf, boys soccer, girls soccer, volleyball, senior athletes and homecoming 2012.

In addition to the fall issue, the students plan to produce a winter and spring issue.

Miller Printing in Amsterdam printed the magazine which sells for $7.50.

The Galway Village Press, the print and publication division of the student-run media conglomerate, Eagles Media Center, was originally established in 2009 by the Galway Central School’s Business Department to manage the publication of its books, “Reflections of Galway from the Foothills of the Adirondacks,” “Lorenzo El Loro and his Flying Adventure,” and “A Life Between Two Cities.”

In addition to publishing, the business has grown to provide printing and photography services.
