Meet Our NSR Student Editors — Tayler Boelk, Assistant Editor – The North Star Reports – Sponsored by The College of St. Scholastica and The Middle Ground Journal
Tayler Boelk, NSR Assistant Editor. I am a junior at the College of Saint Scholastica majoring in Biochemistry. Although my studies are in the sciences, I have always been passionate about the arts. At CSS, I sing in the Bella Voce select women’s choir, am involved with theater, serve as President of the English and Arts Club, and am co-editor-in-chief of the campus newspaper, The Cable. My interest in these clubs and activities are what helped me to decide to take on an English minor last year.
I began writing for the North Star Reports in the Spring of 2014 with the goal of improving my writing skills. Now, I enjoy sharing the importance of family history, learning about different cultures, and seeing the world around us in a new lens. This summer, I am most excited about leaving the U.S. for the first time. I hope to come back from Mexico with many new perspectives and article ideas for the North Star Reports.

The North Star Reports: Global Citizenship and Digital Literacy, The College of St. Scholastica and the scholarly Middle Ground Journal’s online learning community and outreach program with undergraduate and K-12 classes around the world. The North Star Reports has flourished since 2012. For a brief summary, please see the American Historical Association’s Perspectives on History, at:
The North Star Reports publishes edited essays from our students, particularly from those who are currently stationed, or will soon be stationed abroad. Students have reported from Mongolia, Southern China, Shanghai, northeastern China, The Netherlands, Tanzania, Ireland, England, Finland, Russia, and Haiti. We also have students developing reviews of books, documentaries, and films, and analysis of current events from around the world. We will post their dispatches, and report on their interactions with the North Star Reports students and teachers. We thank The Department of History and Politics and the School of Arts and Letters of The College of St. Scholastica for their generous financial support for The North Star Reports and The Middle Ground Journal.
