Grain Valley News is thrilled to welcome three college intern reporters this summer.
Cole Arndorfer is a student-athlete at Hannibal-LaGrange University in Hannibal, Missouri where he is studying Media Communications while playing baseball. Outside of classes and baseball, Arndorfer, a 2021 graduate of Grain Valley High School, writes for the university newspaper and puts together stories and video for the university news program. Arndorfer is excited for this opportunity with Grain Valley News, saying, “I’m very thankful and I look forward to gaining some great experience in the industry this summer!”
Jake Hipsher, also a Grain Valley graduate, recently completed his first year of college, attending the University of Missouri-Columbia to study journalism and strategic communication.
"I am looking forward to gaining professional journalism experience in a community that I know so well," Hipsher said.
Ezra Whitaker, graduated from Grain Valley in 2021 and has lived in Grain Valley for most of his life. Whitaker will attend the University of Missouri-Columbia to study journalism this fall.
"I look forward to covering the news in Grain Valley," Whitaker said.
