Principal Mr. Bob Ryan received an email Tuesday, Jan. 17 informing him that the National Council of Teachers of English awarded BLAM, the Brophy Literary Arts Magazine, with the Highest Award rank in their 2011 NCTE Program to Recognize Excellence in Student Literary Magazines.
Over the past two decades, Brophy’s literary art magazine has transitioned from “The Tower” to the “Magazine Formerly Known as ‘The Tower’” to now BLAM.
The magazine is continuing its tradition of transition by expanding onto the Internet with BLAM Online, better known as BLAMO.
“Our hope is that our Web site will be as popular if not more so than our publication,” said Jeramy Moschonas ’11, who is co-editor of BLAM with Michael Notistine ’11 and Beau Peterlin ’10.
