Seven Eastern Kentucky University students will gain journalism experience this summer at news media outlets across the Commonwealth through the Kentucky Press Association’s summer intern program.
Hosted annually by KPA, the program matches students with member newspapers and news outlets across the state to provide eight-week internships, each supported by a $3,000 stipend.
Twenty-three internships were funded for summer 2016.
Eastern interns and newspapers at which they will be working are: Corbin junior Candice Garcia, Corbin News Journal; Frankfort sophomore Amber Booth, Frankfort State Journal; Mt. Carroll, Ill., senior Bryan Reynolds, London Sentinel-Echo; Richmond senior Brianna White, Mt. Sterling Advocate; Carrollton junior Lauren Holloway, Owenton News Herald; Louisville sophomore Taylor Weiter, Shepherdsville Pioneer News; and Georgetown junior Emily Vinson, Winchester Sun.
