Haylie Berkland is a senior at North Central College. Her first exposure to the field of journalism came during her junior year at Oswego High School when she picked up a pen for the school newspaper, The Panther’s Paw, and turned her reporting dreams into a reality. Before long, she made her way up in the ranks, and by her senior year, she was named The Panther’s Paw News Editor/Editor-in-Chief. As a North Central transfer student, Haylie sought out The Chronicle and NCClinked.com in the Fall of 2014 to continue working in the student media realm, all the while diligently working towards a degree in Journalism. When Haylie is not spending her time pouring over her school work or working her part-time job in the fabulous retail world, she can be found listening to music or reading. Haylie looks forward to continuing her work with The Chronicle NCClinked next year as a fifth-year senior at North Central.
