Just a week remains for the Host Newspapers to select their interns for 2019. The KPA Past Presidents, overseeing the Kentucky Journalism Foundation, selected 15 newspapers at its January meeting to have interns for this summer. Internships are for 10 weeks and each receives $4,000. As of today, nine newspapers have filled their 2019 summer internship slot.
The interns selected so far include Hannah Vanover, Oliva Mohr and Nicole Ziege, all from Western Kentucky University; Samantha Tamplin and Emily Patrick, from Eastern Kentucky University; Lakota Tackett and Julianna Leach from Morehead State University; and Robert (Keith) Jaco and Claire Smith from Murray State University.
Host Newspapers have until March 22 to select and confirm their intern and they will lose the right to have an intern for this coming summer.
