We’re proud of the summer internship program we’ve established at the Malheur Enterprise and we hope you are too.

And once again, we’re planning to bring some of the most talented journalism students in the country to Vale.

They will get an unforgettable experience. They will learn about rural America. They will learn about journalism rooted in fairness and ethics.

They will learn the vital need to help rebuild the trust of you and others in the media, especially local media. A promising future for the county, Oregon and the country depends on it.

We do this each summer, and you and . . .
