Meet Our NSR Student Editors — Mackenzie Sherrill, Social Media Editor – The North Star Reports – Sponsored by The College of St. Scholastica and The Middle Ground Journal
My name is Mackenzie Sherrill and I am a Biology major at the College of St. Scholastica. My intended graduation date is the winter of 2017 and I began writing for the NSR in the spring of 2015. I am from a small town in central Minnesota called Rush City, where I grew up and graduated from high school. After graduating college I plan to go on to get my Master’s degree in order to become a physician assistant and plan to work somewhere in Minnesota. I chose a path in the medical field because I love to help others and hope to impact others’ lives in a positive way through my work and compassion.
I decided to write for the NSR because I saw it as the perfect outlet as a means to use my love for writing. Ever since I was young, I can remember enjoying to write, but was never able to find an outlet besides school to write about things I believe to have a deeper meaning, that is until the opportunity to write for the NSR was given to me. I consider writing for the NSR to be very special because it will allow me to write about things I am passionate about, which will hopefully help me to educate and teach other students about important things going on in the news. I am excited for this chance to write because it will allow me to stand out on my future applications into physician assistant programs and that it will serve as a way for people to get a good insight into the type of person I am and what I value by seeing the topics I enjoy writing about. Some of the topics I am interested in and hope to share with readers will pertain to science and areas within the medical field, since those are the things I am most passionate about.

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.
