I love working with interns who jump in, ask lots of questions and get to work. Hamilton College's Julia Ferguson '16 drove back roads with me on assignment during the big prison escape manhunt. She joined researchers on a loon tally on an Adirondack lake, trekked the woods where Ralph Waldo Emerson camped, and paddled the 90 Miler canoe race. It's been great having her at North Country Public Radio.
