Lux Haney-Jardine ’20 not only made headlines for Christ School, but North Carolina as a whole at last week's National Student Media Contests in Washington, D.C.
The fifth-year senior from Asheville emerged as the only individual award winner from the Tar Heel state – Lux received an “Excellent” designation in Review Writing. The N.C. Scholastic Media Association congratulated the Greenie for his accomplishment on Twitter.

Lux was part of Christ School’s five-day trip to the National High School Journalism Convention held November 20-24 in Washington. He is one of Christ School’s 33 AP Scholars and has previously been recognized for his writing by the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards (Gold key for poetry in 2018 and Honorable mention for humor in 2019) and the Montreat College Creative Writing Festival (First place for poetry in 2018).
Lux’s short story entitled “Bisquey Business” was chosen as the winner of a bookmark contest held by the English Department during the 2018-19 school year. He has contributed mightily to Christ School’s Quiz Bowl team, which was reached the Small School National Championship Tournament the past two years. Lux is the son of faculty member Jennifer MacDonald, who teaches World Languages.
