Missourian Blog Post #1

For this semester, I will be a reporter on the education beat at the Columbia Missourian. Part of our responsiblities are to blog about our reporting experiences for the benefits of our professors, editors and peers. I expect to update this sub-section of my blog at least twice a week to keep everyone updated on what I am working on.

To see my work at the Missourian, please refer to the Missourian Staff page, where a link will be posted to my profile at http://www.columbiamissourian.com/
