Echo Press welcomes Wosepka as new summer intern

Mari Wosepka of Alexandria was recently hired as a reporter intern for the Echo Press and Osakis Review this summer.

The internship program is part of the Pohlad Family Foundation administered through the Minnesota Newspaper Association.

Wosepka will be a senior at Alexandria Area High School in the fall.

“I am most looking forward to the overall experience. I’ve already learned so much about what goes into making a newspaper and journalism that I never would have thought of,” she said.

Wosepka started her internship June 4.

“I have already learned how to work a camera and have had one story and four pictures published in the paper,” she said.

At AAHS, Wosepka is co-leader of Les Marquise – an all-girls singing group, is a National Honor Society member, hockey player, and performs in the school orchestra and choir.

In her free time, she said she enjoys spending time with family and friends, swimming in lakes, water sports, working out and browsing the Internet.

Wosepka, 17, is the daughter of Tom and Kelly Wosepka of Alexandria. She has two brothers, Alec and Zach, and a sister, Courtney.
