Kelly McBride: 2003 Devroy Fellow

My experience as a Devroy fellow has served me well in my early career as a journalist. Spending time at The Washington Post, I was able to learn from the best reporters in the business, gaining from not only their wealth of experience, but also from their stories about the legendary Ann Devroy. My time in Washington - the people I met, places I saw and what I experienced - was positively indescribable.

In addition to three wonderful weeks at The Post, the summer internship I earned literally helped launch my career. I spent three months as an intern at the Green Bay Press-Gazette, where I am currently employed as the paper's education reporter. It's given me a great start.
