Memorial Day Ceremony at the Menlo Cementary Fern Hill on Monday. "The sacrifices of many are often forgotten by the privileges of freedom. The mere privileges we indulge upon that came at the cost of blood, sweat, tears, and life itself. Men and women have died for our country so that we may live a life of freedom, a life earned for us, not given. It is our duty to honor them for their selfless sacrifice and it is also our duty to make sure their sacrifices are never forgotten." ~ by Jeff Clemens

This internship began when I was only sixteen and a junior at the Napavine High School. I was a shy and timid student, working on my school projects and studying in my spare time. I had to step out of my comfort zone to interview students and staff, and travel to school activities. Inevitably, I grew to like the spontaneity and adventure the Town Crier Newspaper provides. I have been granted countless opportunities to meet new people and most importantly, experiment with creative writing.
