“From newspaper to news organization,” a few words with Katherine Ellis, Editor in Chief @TheChrony

Its no wonder Katherine found a niche at the Chronicle. She didn’t become an editor in the traditional way. She went from night owl to early bird. She has been a writer since her first word, and her love for the written word had her editing copy long before she got to the newsroom.

“Before I could even write, I felt like I was writing,” said Katherine. “I understood the concept, but I just didn’t know how, but that wasn’t going to stop me from pretending I could.”

Despite her quiet confidence, it was exciting to hear Katherine describe how Chronicle staff once out-scooped the pros. On the job for only a year, her vision for student news paints a bright future for those seeking real-world experience.

Strategic Communication C/O 2017. Arrived in the SLC via the City of Brotherly Love, the Great Rift Valley, and all manner of in-between. As an instrument of independent student media, my goal is to "inform and delight," by sharing conversation about the U experience that makes being here worthwhile.

    It makes about 5-6 cups, depending on the size of the fruit you’re using. In my oiipnon, that’s about 2 servings (my husband and I split this most mornings).If you’d like it sweeter, as someone asked above, just add more grapes or some pineapple. No need to add processed sweeteners.
