Below are some of my favorite stories I’ve written while at The Daily Mississippian.
During a University of Mississippi School of Journalism and New Media reporting trip down to Panama City, Florida, I was able to speak with two Ole Miss alums who live in the area and ask them about how they were recovering from Hurricane Michael.
During the Fall 2015 semester, the debate over the Confederate emblem in the Mississippi State flag, among other places, was heating up fast. I attended a public debate with students and faculty to hear both sides on the issue.
A 2011 Ole Miss Law graduate, who was legally blind, died in September 2015 after a short battle with cancer. Kendrick Kennedy was a name everyone knew in the Law School. I attended his memorial the Law School held in his honor.
This was my very first story for The Daily Mississippian and was published front page above the fold the first week of my freshman year. I have this article hanging on my cork board in my room. Campus Recreation added a new fee to intramural sports in the Fall of 2015, when in previous years fees were included in tuition. Many returning students didn’t like the change.
A football game at Ole Miss is a sight to see, but for students and residents of Oxford living off campus, it can be difficult to get on campus for the game. I found transportation options for those living off campus to get to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on any given game day Saturday.
