State of the Ozarks is proud to announce...
Tiffany Lyle, College of the Ozarks Intern
As of June 1, State of the Ozarks begins working with our first College of the Ozarks intern, 21-year old Tiffany Lyle, journalism major.
“It’s not everyday that one gets to do an internship with an online magazine, and not just any magazine at that!” notes Lyle. “StateoftheOzarks was created by an idea and lots of hard work and that is what I’m looking forward to this summer: being creative and working hard.
“I know that nothing like writing, photography or interviews just happens to be good. Experience and people teach you to be good. I’m going to make sure I have my ears turned on full shut-up-and-listen-to-learn mode this summer.”
“I do love to learn through experience,” continues Lyle. “The most effective way for me is to watch how things are done by others and then go about it with my own style.”
When not living and working on campus, Lyle often spends time with her parents and five siblings (four brothers and a sister). Her hobbies include drawing, writing, camping, trail hiking, making short videos, traveling and reading.
Throughout college at “Hard Work U,” Lyle has worked as staff writer for the Outlook Student Newspaper, staff member at the Ralph Foster Museum, writing assistant at the Center for Writing & Thinking (CWT), as well as housekeeper at the Keeter Center, landscaper and farmers’ market attendant.
We are proud not only of this affiliation but the opportunity to provide this promising student with our best academic and real-life experience possible. Be sure to look for a number of stories from Tiffany Lyle very soon!
