PRT intern Rebecca Ford

The PRT would like to introduce the newest member of our staff. Rebecca Ford, a senior at Patagonia Union High School, has joined our team as a student intern. Rebecca, who was editor of the yearbook her junior year, has been attending PUHS for three years.

Rebecca will be covering school sports, profiles, events, and programs. Her first assignment was to get us a photo of the first day of school. “I am interested in writing and designing. I really like writing, especially school essays,” Rebecca told us recently. 

She was selected as a Questbridge College Prep scholar, a highly competitive program that places students at top universities. Rebecca’s top four college choices, so far, are Yale, Duke, Vanderbilt and Colorado College. She plans to study botany, concentrating on plant-based alternatives to traditional medicinal drugs. 

Rebecca is excited about writing for the PRT. “I hope it’s fun and I also hope I get to meet a lot of members of the community,” she said, “Get out there, meet new people, ask a lot of questions and earn some money.” 

We are excited to partner with PUHS and look forward to Rebecca’s articles and photos in our newsletter, our print issues and on our website.
