I formally ended my time as the Youth Columnist and Co-Editor of The Youth Page at The Cattleman’s Advocate in December of 2012. I handed the reins to a very hesitant, but capable, younger sister Savannah. She is doing an excellent job. Before she took on the title of Youth Columnist she made me promise I would help edit her stories. She is only on her third month and this time I did not even need to edit. I am so excited for her!
Back in December, I thought my time at The Advocate might be complete. Yet in 2013, I still find myself writing for my uncle nearly every month.
With this piece I did a little investigative reporting to follow up on a article Uncle Jon found in a local paper a few weeks ago.
Here, I was covering an event at the Missouri Valley Commission Company. It was encouraging to see so many women eager to improve their skills.
Above, I was the photographer for the story. Now that I’ve finished my time as The Advocate’s Youth Page gal, I guess I still enjoy working with Uncle Jon and for the paper. Looks like I’m not going away after all. Old habits are hard to break. This past week, I worked on a feature that readers will hopefully enjoy later this spring.
