Alexa Nash hired as Star Herald intern

By Alex Long

Alexa Nash just finished her junior year at Kasson-Mantorville High School, and she's also a new intern at the Star Herald. Alexa was born in Rochester, and has lived in Mantorville her whole life.

"I plan to just stay here," she said with a smile.

In fact, she already has a career here cut out for her. Alexa's mother owns and runs the Chocolate Shoppe in Mantorville, which was passed down by her own mother. Alexa is looking forward to continuing the family business.

Editor Melanie Dobson is thrilled to have her aboard. She and Alexa had worked together previously in the Mantorville Theatre production of "Nunsense," and Melanie was impressed by her resume. She was already aware of Alexa's ability as a writer.

"I was familiar with her writing, because she's done writing for us in the past," said Dobson.

Alexa has previously written theater reviews, covered Mantorville's Marigold days, and contributed a piece about the fall Rendezvous. In addition, she wrote an entertaining article last November about a man who was running for King of Dodge County.

Alexa was well equipped to write about theater because she is very involved with theater at her high school and at the Mantorville Opera House. She's in her high school's concert and marching bands.

"I'm looking forward to learning about all the different pieces that go into journalism," said Nash.

"Writing, photography, research, and putting it all into one."
