Internship experience

Hollyann Crum
TD Intern

It is hard to believe that the semester internship that I began with The Times Dispatch on Jan. 15 has rushed so quickly to an end.

Nervous butterflies flew in my stomach as I walked through the doors on my first day; however, after meeting the delightful, welcoming staff, my nerves were calmed and the excitement began.

From meeting and interviewing Tuskegee Airman Milton Crenchaw to attending insightful meetings throughout the county, I have learned, grown and fully enjoyed my experience.

The knowledge that I received first-hand at the newspaper surpasses classroom education. Not only do I believe I have grown in news writing, I have also gained an understanding of the newspaper industry.

Staff members entrusted me with personal responsibility at the paper, yet never failed to be present when I needed assistance. The staff became my friends as I observed, learned and embraced the field of print journalism.

I truly appreciate the encouragement and kindness of the community as I reported at local events. I have been blessed with the opportunity to grow at The Times Dispatch and am thankful for the compassion and support of the unforgettable staff.

As I walk out the door, I will carry with me the skills, knowledge and memories I received while interning with The Times Dispatch, applying them to life and my future career.
