Editor's note 1/11/18

 This week we welcome our new journalism intern, Megan Swett, a student in University of Illinois Springfield’s Public Affairs Reporting master’s degree program. Megan, from O’Fallon, received her undergraduate degree from UIS, where she was editor-in-chief of The Journal, the student newspaper. For the next six months Megan will be reporting for IT from the Statehouse, where her PAR colleagues will be interning with other news bureaus. It is always refreshing to hear PAR journalists describe their energy and excitement for this old craft. “Journalism is a vital aspect of democracy,” writes Megan, “and it’s been besmirched and mistreated frequently over the last few decades. I want to be part of the generation that revitalizes it and regains the trust of the public.”  –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
