Two enthusiastic interns have joined the staff at the Courier Press for the summer of 2015—one for her sixth summer and another for the first time. Caitlin Bittner, a graduate student from Prairie du Chien, and Addison Mumm, a college sophomore from Bloomington, will both conduct interviews, write and take photographs regularly for the hometown newspaper.
Caitlin Bittner, 23, just finished her first year at New Mexico Highlands University, in Las Vegas, N.M. The daughter of Theresa and the late Dale Bittner, of Prairie du Chien, is also a 2009 PdC High School graduate and a 2013 UW-Eau Claire graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in English, and a creative writing emphasis.
Caitlin began her journey with the Courier Press in the summer of 2010, after her first year back as a UW-EC undergraduate. She responded to an ad looking for interns in the newspaper.
