About 2626

2626 East is an ambitious project that follows in the footsteps of the Boston Globe’s ‘Spotlight’ team of investigative journalists, and in the tradition of The Hilltop and the Daily Wildcat, merging that mission with tradition the competencies of English 102 and the CGCC Honors Program. 2626 East intends to be a once a semester publication teeming with hard-hitting investigative essays and the fresh new voices of Chandler-Gilbert’s brightest students.
