When he came to North Cross School in 1994, Director of Development Barry Glenn (in photo) joined a school that was expanding in nearly every way. Programs were being added, buildings were under construction (or on the way), students were achieving, and all of this pertinent news needed to be communicated. Barry met with Headmaster William Stacey to discuss ways to promote all the things happening at the school. Out of that meeting came the idea to produce a printed publication to publicize North Cross School. Desktop publishing was trending, Barry had a computer with the proper software, and Crossties was born.
The early editions were in print. They consisted of 8 pages printed in red and black, and were distributed quarterly to the community. The content was largely a mix between AllPoints and the Crossties we know today. Sports updates were presented, the results of parent surveys were released, and the arts programs were featured. And of course, each corner of the campus submitted an update or feature to the publication.
