In keeping with a refined local process, the Mountain Advocate welcomes its newest member, Tasha Stewart, as a news reporter.


Stewart is a 2011 Knox Central High School graduate who went on to earn a B.A. in English with a minor in Mass Communications from Union College, degrees that she hadn’t planned on picking.

“I picked my major based on the people,” Stewart said. “Initially, I went to Union to be a nursing student, but found out very quickly that I hated it. Then I tried business and also hated that. But at Union, we all have to take core curriculum classes that include English and humanities and one of my English classes focused on poetry. I had never really been a fan of poetry, but by the end of the semester, I came to appreciate it. Then I got to meet the rest of the English department and found out they were a bunch of cool people.”

Stewart is excited to use her new position to highlight those whose voices are not always heard.
