My name is Brian Gray and I interned with the Casey County News in Liberty, Ky. I have had a great experience during my time here writing for them. Even though I have three weeks left, I've learned so much.
I've learned a little bit about photography and taken many photos. I also learned to always get the names of the people in your photos that you take.
I've learned about writing feature stories and stories that really matter to people. I recently completed a story about an old one-room school house.
I also attended the fair and reported the results from the events, and took photos of them.
I would say so far my biggest experience would be covering a lot of material over the flood that took place on May 2 in Liberty. The first main story I wrote about all of the damages at the AG/EXPO Center and the possibility that the fair could be cancelled because of the flooding.
I would say this internship has helped me a lot for my future. It prepares me to know what to expect if I am going to write for a local newspaper. I believe it helped my writing skills more than they were before I started the internship.
Since I just started a Mass Communications major two semesters ago, I hope this internship helps me get better at writing .
