Covering the Hill for Southwest Colorado

By Dean’s Intern Grace George at The Durango Herald

Grace GeorgeWorking with The Durango Herald has been one of the best experiences of my undergraduate career. As an intern with The Herald, I have been able to improve my writing and reporting skills immensely while working with great editors. It has been such a meaningful experience that has helped me gain more confidence as a young journalist. I have been able to interview senators and a congresswoman, see my writing in print, and cover national news for a localized audience. I have deeply enjoyed writing stories about important political events, such as former President Trump’s second impeachment trial or the passage of the COVID Relief bill, in unique ways that connect with the interests of Southwest Colorado.
Every article I have written for The Herald has been a learning experience. It has definitely been challenging at times, but also extremely fulfilling, and I feel myself growing as a journalist every day.
