"Mary Hudetz, 26, grew up at Crow Agency, Mont., which inspired her interest in journalism. "I come from an area where a lot of very important stories remain untold. When the community you care about doesn't have a certain resource then it often forces you to realize how crucial that resource is. In the case of my town, a newspaper is what's missing. I realize that the business is going to see even more adjustments in the next few years, but the need for dedicated reporters and photographers is not going to change." Hudetz, a University of Montana journalism major, interned last summer for the Associated Press in Sioux Falls, S.D. She is writing features this summer."
I hope she wins the Pulitzer Prize in Feature Writing while at the StarTribune!
