Are accolades important?

Last weekend, The Madisonian’s owner/publishers, Susanne Hill and Erin Leonard, attended the 132nd Montana Newspaper Association annual convention in Lewistown. Aside from the inspiration they received along with tips about how to better serve Madison County, they represented The Madisonian at the awards banquet.

Utterly inspiring

Earlier this month, I attended the University of Montana School of Journalism’s internship and career fair. I traveled to Missoula without any expectations – though The Madisonian and the West Yellowstone Star are not desperate for interns, I wanted to see a young crop of journalists. If I found a student with skills complimentary to what our organization preferences, all the better!

A positive attitude goes a long way

A few weeks ago, I hopped a plane to Las Vegas to spend a quick 40 hours celebrating my best friend’s 21st birthday. Now, when you meet me, my personality does not scream VEGAS, but Grace is like a little sister to me, and I would do anything to spend time with her. That meant I braved pool time on a 105 degree afternoon and rallied for partying until the wee hours. Everything considered, the time spent with the birthday girl, her mother and her sister-in-law was great fun. On the plane home, my sides hurt from constant laughter, but my feet hurt even worse due to the torturous shoes I wore … thanks, fashion!
