I grew up in a small town in the heart of Kansas. When I say small, I mean small…a town of 2,000 people and one stoplight. Ellinwood was my home for 19 years before I left to attend the University of Kansas. Although at the time I was ready to see new and bigger places, I can’t help but smile whenever I return to Ellinwood. It just has a certain charm. What can I say? It has been and always will be home to me.
As an aspiring journalist, I hope to cover a variety of important issues. One topic that has recently become a focus of mine is rural living. After leaving home, I realized just how special small towns like Ellinwood are. Communities like Ellinwood welcome you home after you’ve been away and come together in ways that larger communities can’t. My hope for this website is to share the truth about what is going on in Small Town, Kansas.
