The staff of The Grayson County News-Gazette would like to welcome its newest member, Michaela Priddy, who will intern with the paper for the summer.
A lifelong Grayson County resident and 2013 graduate of Grayson County High School, Priddy, 19, will begin her sophomore year at Kentucky Wesleyan College this fall. She is majoring in English.
Priddy said she is “nervously excited” to begin her internship with the paper and looks forward to exploring the journalism field to see if she’d like to pursue a career in it.
“I’m hoping to get experience,” said Priddy, whose first experience with journalism came during her senior year of high school when she wrote for the GCHS newspaper. “I’ve always been interested in writing.”
A Clarkson native, Priddy’s parents are Kevin and Carletta. Priddy also has two younger brothers.
Grayson County News-Gazette General Manager Theresa Armstrong said, “We’re excited to have Michaela as our intern this summer. It’s always important to encourage education.”
