UP grad enjoys reporting on environment, food

The first of two new faces at the News-Times and Hillsboro Tribune office this summer has arrived in our office in Forest Grove.

Kate Stringer, a recent graduate of the University of Portland — where she majored in English and was the Living Section editor at The Beacon, UP’s award-winning campus newspaper — will serve as a general-assignment reporter for both papers over the next 10 weeks.

She won her internship through the prestigious Charles Snowden Program for Excellence in Journalism at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.

Stringer grew up in Everett, Wash., and graduated from Archbishop Murphy High School there. She has a particular interest in reporting on environmental and food policy issues, and also enjoys writing people profiles, such as the one on World War II veteran James Hattan that appears on today’s front page.

In her leisure time she enjoys reading, photography and running.

“I’m looking forward to improving my writing and learning how to be a better reporter,” said Stringer, adding that she’s eager to meet people in our readership area and tell their stories.

A second summer intern, David Roza, will arrive June 2. Roza is a rising senior at Haverford College in Philadelphia, Pa.
