HS Newspaper scores Mattis scoop


When’s the last time you read an interview with US Defense Secretary James Mattis?

*** crickets ***

The Mercer Island High School newspaper, The Islander, called his private cell phone after the number was inadvertently published by the Washington Post and left a message.

And, surprise, Mattis called back!

Read the back story of the interview here.

Kudos to the reporter for calling and then landing the interview.
