Valdosta State University student Ethan Lowe just completed an internship at The Courier Herald in Dublin. Ethan tended to focus on honing his photography skills by taking photos like the one below. "I did not just learn the in and outs of journalism or how to take good photos or write stories. I learned something more, and that was what it meant to be a journalist. I learned that there are no set hours because events happen at all times. I learned that you may not get to drink your coffee that morning because of some wreck happening across town at 8 a.m. I learned that we are here to document history as it unfolds, especially through these weird times with the coronavirus and everything else going on with it," Lowe said.
