The FHS Journalism department has been a part of Quill and Scroll for the past 75 years, and the society itself has been around since its founding on April 10, 1926.

The society recognizes and encourages both individual and group achievements in journalism and academics. Some of the requirements for Quill and Scroll are that the student must be atleast a sophomore, they must either have a B average or be in the upper third of their class, and they must have shown superiority in some form of journalism or media school work.
