COLUMN: Summer in Crenshaw County has been a blessing

Published 7:42 pm Wednesday, July 29, 2015

I have been blessed beyond measure being able to spend my summer learning about the Friendliest City in the South and getting to gain some valuable journalism knowledge from my boss, Mona Moore.

Although my time here is coming to an end I just want to thank everyone I’ve met over the course of my internship for taking me in and welcoming me!

It really means a lot that I was welcomed with such open and friendly arms. There wasn’t a day that went by I felt out of place or unwelcome.

I am going to miss this place a lot, besides from my Tuesday lunches at the Chicken Shack I am going to miss my boss Mona (yes Mona I’m calling you out).

I know when I first started I wasn’t the best writer and still a lot of the times you have to edit my stories, but because of this internship I have learned so much from you.

There were so many things that I didn’t know or fully understand in my reporting classes and it was so nice to actually apply them in a real-life newspaper.

I am going to miss our talks about everything under the sun. There was never a dull day in our office and I know it won’t be the same without me. I will be back to visit though, don’t you worry!

Every time I drive through Luverne I’m going to have to stop by your office and maybe help you cover a story or layout a faith page. You never know!

Finally I want to thank the people of Luverne for allowing me to cover all the news in Crenshaw County.

This place will always hold a special place in my heart. Unfortunately my time in Luverne is over but it will never be forgotten.

One last thing, if you ever want some good college sports to watch I would love it (and I know Troy softball would too) if you would go and support the Troy University softball team!

I promise it will be entertaining and you will leave wanting to watch again.

So long for now Luverne, I’ll see you again soon.
