Auburn native joins newspaper staff this summer

LAUREL — The Laurel Advocate welcomed a new intern to its staff last week.
Ellis Clopton, 19, Auburn, will be writing and reporting full-time during his summer break from college.
Clopton is currently a junior studying journalism at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with minors in English and political science.
His interest in journalism began at an early age.
He used to write a newspaper for his mother and father on printing paper. His “Clopton Gazette” articles covered the happenings at the family household and featured hand-drawn cartoons in the place of photographs. The newspaper featured what knitting projects his mother was working on and what the family would be eating for dinner.
