Two Students Shine at Quitman County Democrat

Posted on: November 15th, 2010 by

Two Journalism students wrote enterprise articles for The Quitman County Democrat this semester, as part of their classwork in Professor Patricia Thompson’s Advanced Reporting course.
Molly Hutter and Natalie Dickson wrote articles that were published on the front page of the newspaper, which is located in Marks.

“Molly and Natalie researched and reported stories I’d been trying to get to for over a year, so they helped serve the people of this county,” said Josie Fleming, publisher of The Quitman County Democrat. “This serving by informing is what community journalism is all about. And they worked without working me, a big help. They took their assignments and ran with them and gave me an excellent final product.”
