Growing up, I was always excited to flip through the pages of my local newspaper. From time to time, my name appeared on the school pages under the honor roll lists or in some community photo from a school or Girl Scout event. Otherwise, even for the 95 percent of the time my name and likeness did not appear in print, I still enjoyed reading the latest news on the people, places and things around me. At a young age, I knew that somehow, I wanted to become involved with local journalism when I was older.
