Brief History

While attending Middle Tennessee State University, I spent a year working
for the student newspaper Sidelines. My time at Sidelines was
a supplement to my chosen major/minor combination, Recording Industry and
Journalism. Ms. Fern Greenbank, the advisor, suggested I join and contribute
to the new weekly entertainment insert. I provided several articles to
Sidelines
and the insert Exposure before transistioning to Exposure
editor.

I am providing links below to each of my articles, prefaced with the headline and
a short blurb. For now, the links will take you to the article as it is hosted on
the current Sidelines website.
