100010July 9, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — The six college interns at the Salt Lake Tribune this summer -- two of whom are undergraduates at DePauw University -- "view our industry's challenges as an opportunity for innovation and improvement," writes Lisa Carricaburu. "They are a passionate and impressive group. Their preparation and commitment speaks well for journalism's future."

An article in the Utah newspaper notes, "Margaret Distler and Chase Hall are juniors at DePauw University in Greencastle, Ind., and are on the staff of The DePauw student newspaper. Distler, who is from Fort Wayne, Ind., and Hall, who is from Hinsdale, Ill., are recipients of their school’s Barney Kilgore Fellowship, which funded their internships. Distler's emphasis is visual journalism. She will spend most of her internship on the photo and design desks. Hall is rotating among various desks, primarily writing feature stories."

Carricuburu points out, "Each intern earned this 10-week summer job through a competitive process, having been chosen from a large pool of candidates who applied for our own internship program or for fellowships offered through their schools or journalism organizations."100011
