Minnesota State University Moorhead senior Charly Haley is finding herself knee-deep in local journalism, as she was hired to work as an intern for the Detroit Lakes Newspapers.

Haley, a Sartell, Minn. native, is majoring in Mass Communications with an emphasis in muli-media journalism and minoring in communication studies.

Since starting her career in Detroit Lakes, Haley has been writing feature stories for the front of the Lake Area Press, as well as reporting for the Becker County Record, the Detroit Lakes Tribune and working on stories for both the Summer Living and Summer Scene magazines.

Readers can also find her work in the special section tabs for the water carnival and the Becker County Fair.

“I really like being a journalist because I like meeting other people, and I feel like you learn so much because you get to see so many things as you work,” said Haley, who will remain with the Detroit Lakes Newspapers until August 15.
