This project reflects sample images of 4 feature articles I wrote during my internship with Allegheny West Magazine, a local community-based periodical with three distinct editions (West Allegheny, Moon, and Montour). The internship took place over the course of slightly more than a year, August 2010 through October 2011. Read Less

This is the cover of the first issue of Allegheny West Magazine that I wrote an article for. The article was entitled, "Good Sports," and was centered around a couple of local sportsmen's clubs, namely the Corapolis District Sportsmen's Association and Forest Grove Sportsmen's Association. Below is the article itself.
This is the cover of the issue of Allegheny West that my second feature article with them appeared in. The article was entitled, "Window To The Past," and was centered on the history room that my hometown, Oakdale Borough, has in its Community Center. Being that Oakdale is my hometown, it was especially enjoyable for me to do this article, which is posted below.
This is the cover of the issue of Allegheny West that my third article appeared in. The article was entitled, "A Fellowship of Flowers," and was about the Oakdale Garden Club, an organization that has been in existence since the early 1900's. Below is the article. 
This is the cover of the issue of Allegheny West that my fourth and final article appeared in. The title,"Oakdale's Resiliency Keeps 'America's Hometown' Thriving," reflects that idea behind the piece, which is concerned with Oakdale's rebuilding and rise from the damage caused by a massive flood that swept through it in 2004. I was in high school when this flood hit, and I still remember how everything looked, the aid that the town received, and my own role in relief efforts, so it was especially nice for me to have the opportunity to write about this memorable piece of my hometown's history. The article is posted below.
