Patrick Henry College is known for its internships. One of our journalism students, Heather Terwilliger, scored an internship with USA TODAY. That is huge in itself, a plum opportunity and getting it was a great accomplishment for Heather. But her accomplishments on the job were so great that the paper started publishing her stories! With a byline! That almost never happens with an intern. Instead of making her fetch coffee and do the filing, the editors had her write feature stories that were being read by their 3 million readers. That’s impressive and a tribute to Heather and to her college that gave her such a good education and that boasts such gifted students. I was actually planning to blog about that, but then Heather outdid herself.
But this is the killer: HEATHER TERWILLIGER IS ONE OF THOSE HOMESCHOOLED KIDS FROM CALIFORNIA that the court thinks are so educationally disadvantaged!
