TELL CITY – The Perry County News has welcomed a second high-school senior as an intern for the fall semester.
Jacqueline Trowbridge is a senior at Perry Central High School who will spend her afternoons at the News, working with the paper’s staff, writing news and feature stories and occasional columns. She will also hone her photography skills. She will also do some news and feature writing at the school.
Trowbridge said her interest in becoming an intern follows her plans on attending college after high school to pursue a degree in journalism.
Working at the paper, she hopes, will give good insight into the career she seeks to join.
“I am excited to be able to see what journalists do once they get out of school. This internship will help me see what an actual job will be like for me once I graduate.”
Editor Vince Luecke predicted the internship will provide just that, along with a deeper understanding of the community and its people.
“Jacqueline has already shown a genuine excitement about the internship and tackled what we’ve given her,” he said. “I think she will learn a lot and deliver stories and features readers will enjoy.”
Local high-school students are taking part in a variety of internships as part of the county’s participation in the College Success Coalition. A story in Thursday’s News reported on road signs erected last week announcing the county’s inclusion in the program.
Gage Otto, a Tell City High School senior, also works as an editorial-department intern five days a week.
