Journal Staff Report

Mindy Morin is the newest member of the Devils Lake Journal and she is excited to intern through the summer. Morin has just graduated a year early from high school this May, at the age of 17, giving Morin a head start in her academic career. She has enrolled in college courses for this upcoming fall semester and plans to major in communications.

Morin is influenced by Lisa Ling, an American journalist, television presenter, and author who hosts This is Life with Lisa Ling, because she tells the stories she wants to and she has stayed humble in her success as a reporter.

Morin is the daughter of Geneva LaVallie, a contract social worker with Benson County Social Services and an LPN at Good Sam. Morin spends her time fishing, scrapbooking and enjoying free time with family and friends. She hopes to learn every aspect of journalism from her colleagues at the Journal.
