The State News

I began as a copy editor at The State News, MSU’s student newspaper, when I was a freshman. In this position I fact-checked articles quickly but thoroughly. The next year I was promoted to copy chief, and edited every article that was printed in the next day’s paper. I also oversaw the four copy editors that performed fact-checking duties, prioritized tasks and stories to meet deadlines, and communicated with editors, reporters, and designers to ensure accuracy of facts.
