Column: Cota will report as she learns
The Republican Eagle has a high school intern again this year. Mikayla Cota of Red Wing will spend 10 weeks learning about the news business. Readers may have noticed her byline on several stories already.
Cota, who will be a senior in the fall, has served on the school's Aerie staff for three years. She's concentrated on writing, but hopes to improve her photojournalism skills this summer.
"If I could be a double threat, that would be good," she says.
