Sarkis turns experience into position
For Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center Marketing and Events Director Carly Sarkis, telling stories about the community started as a student correspondent for DoorCountyDailyNews.com. Reporting on the stories of Sturgeon Bay High School during the 2012-2013 school year, Sarkis turned that into a number of internships and positions in Chicago and Madison before being hired by the SBVC in May. Sarkis says interviewing United States Senator Ron Johnson was an experience she continues to carry with her.
Sarkis recommends others make the small time commitment to become a student correspondent, saying it is very fulfilling and allows you to have a new perspective on life at a young age.
