The staff of The Grayson County News-Gazette would like to welcome Nicole Ethier, who will intern with the paper for the summer.
Ethier, a University of Louisville (U of L) student from Big Clifty, is an English major who will graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in August, 2014.
Ethier was born in Germany to military parents and attended Grayson County schools through her sophomore year, after which time she transferred to Central Hardin High School. Ethier graduated from Central Hardin High School in 1993.
After high school, Ethier attended Elizabethtown Community College for one-and-a-half years before transferring to U of L in 1998.
Ethier postponed her education until the fall of 2013 to care for her two children, Travis and Reese, with whom she currently lives on a farm in Big Clifty.
Ethier wants to use her degree to become a professional proofreader; however, she expects to pursue her Master’s Degree in English next spring and will likely take education classes to get a teaching certificate.
Ethier said she is both nervous and excited at the prospect of interning for the paper.
“Learning the process and seeing what goes on in the local paper as opposed to just reading it makes a huge difference in how you perceive reporters and their stories,” Ethier said.
Grayson County News-Gazette General Manager Theresa Armstrong said, “We’re thrilled to have Nicole for our intern this summer. It’s always important to encourage education.”
