Ross C. – Newton, MA
Senior at Noble and Greenough School
Ross wrote for his school newspaper and was interested in developing his journalistic skills. He was placed with a talented editor of one of the Community Newspapers who enjoys working with young people and who is very effective in teaching the basics of journalism.
Ross’s skills developed very quickly and he was given the responsibility of a field reporter. He had many interesting experiences, including an interview with Trot Nixon from the Boston Red Sox.
Not only did his articles appear on the front page of the newspaper, but also Ross’s editor offered him a paid free-lance position this coming year.
