Hello, welcome to my website! My name is Kassandra Hoffmeister, but I go by Kassie, and I'm a senior at William Monroe High School. For my Blue Ridge Virtual Governor's School project, I internedwith April Taylor, the former editor of The Greene County Record, and wrote numerous articles on various topics including "Tom in Your Town", "Vegetarian Students Question Menu Choices", and "Opinions Vary on Beginning Tobacco in Military." My community service was completed under the mentorship of the new editor of The Greene County Record, Ray Finefrock, the WMHS journalism teacher, Erik Nyrop, and the Imaging Technology teacher, Ms. Daniel. For my research paper, I explored the decline in newspaper readership as a whole, while also focusing on how a smaller newspaper, such as The Greene County Record, is being affected.
