Source summer student ready to write

I am thrilled to introduce myself as a new member of Meridian Source for the summer! My name is Presley Johnston, and I am going into my first year at Toronto Metropolitan University to study journalism and play for their softball team. I just graduated from Holy Rosary High School with my French diploma. At Holy Rosary I was a part of the senior basketball team, the junior varsity volleyball team and the rugby team, but outside of school sports I am most passionate about softball. I have played here in Lloydminster for the Liners nearly my whole life and just finished two years with the 222’s program based out of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I am hoping to write about cool events in town including the Saskatchewan Summer Games, the Lloyd Ex Fair and the chuckwagon races! I also hope to write about the Teira Thomson annual grassroots tournament that happened here over Father’s Day weekend. I wanted to work here at Meridian Source to gain experience and knowledge to prepare me for university in the fall and eventually my future career. I plan on entering the world of sports journalism once I earn my degree from TMU. I love writing about absolutely anything, but writing about sports is my favorite thing. I am so excited to start my professional journey here at Meridian Source!
