The editors in chief of the Wylie East High School campus print media program have unintentionally started a tradition. Besides earning grades by reporting for the school newspaper and yearbook, they also earn a paycheck by reporting on local happenings for The Wylie News.
The last five interns at The Wylie News have come from East’s journalism program.
Senior Maddie Smith is the current intern at the local newspaper. She is also the editor in chief of the yearbook and sports editor and webmaster for the school newspaper.
“The internship has been an open door for me this year,” Smith said. “It’s given me multiple opportunities to expand my knowledge of journalism.”
