During the fall term, I'm supervising a work study student, Maia Rodriguez, who's writing regular feature stories for Northfield.org. Maia is a senior history major and a student in Doug McGill's journalism class at Carleton. Her stories will be appearing once or twice a week on Northfield.org, and will be archived here. She's already posted stories on National Coming Out Day and the gay community in Northfield, and on the Pressville blog that features student work from her journalism class.
Maia is working for Northfield.org through a partnership with the ACT Center at Carleton, which places student workers in positions with community organizations.
This is my second experience supervising a student journalist at Northfield.org. In January, I worked with a student intern, Amy Sack, a senior from St. Olaf College.
Here's a link to a YouTube video of the multi-talented Maia as soloist with the Carleton a cappella group Exit 69.
