Squire welcomes summer intern

Hello, readers! My name is Bethany Hart. I’m interning here at The Rockford Squire during the summer months. When school begins again in the fall, I will be a senior at Sparta High School. My younger sister, Emily, also attends Sparta High School and my mom is an alumna of Sparta. My dad, Mike Hart, graduated from Rockford High School. Even further in the future, I plan to attend college to earn a degree in professional writing, with minors in Spanish and psychology. My right leg is partially paralyzed due to a virus I contracted as a baby. I am an avid fantasy, science fiction and realistic fiction reader.

Being a reader led me to start writing; writing eventually led me here to the Squire. I am interested in journalism because most of the writing I have done up until this point has been fictional, personal or school-related. While I am interning here at the Squire, hopefully I will learn more about the journalism industry, writing and editing, and what goes into creating

a newspaper.
