LAZER INTERN TRENT MEADE
Consider this a form of short intro to our summer KPA intern, Trenton Meade, a third year journalism major at Eastern Kentucky University. Meade is from Stambaugh, Ky. in nearby Johnson County and has been doing programming work in the Lazer office along with writing articles, going to events and attending meetings during the summer months.
He is almost finished with his 10 week stint with the Lazer and he has accomplished much of what the program is designed for. It helps those chosen with a $3,000 stipend and the access to actual media.
Each year the Kentucky Press Association selects 25 journalism majors after applications are considered and each of those chosen gets to work for an actual news media. Meade is the second intern the Lazer has had in its seven year history. A media is only eligible every four years. –M. Grayson
