The Manchester Times is pleased to announce the addition of Ethan Willis to its editorial staff.
Willis will cover local news and sports through early August, when he will leave to return to the University of Tennessee at Knoxville to pursue his journalism degree.
“I am very excited to have Ethan join our staff for the summer,” said Times editor Josh Peterson. “He is in the early stages of his journalism career but he is very enthusiastic and eager to get to work.”
Willis just completed his freshman year at UT where he is majoring in journalism.
“I’m excited to be able to sharpen my writing skills in a real-world setting,” said Willis. “It is going to be great covering events in the community where I’ve grown up.”
Willis, a Hillsboro native, is a 2013 graduate of Coffee County Central High School.
