The News Tribune and The Olympian partner every year with the University of Washington journalism program to add a student to our statehouse reporting ranks.
This year's intern is Annaliese Davis, a UW senior and South Sound native. Davis is a graduate of Life Christian Academy and received an associate degree from Tacoma Community College in 2012. She knows her way around the Capitol, having worked last year as a nonpartisan policy intern. Her mother, Maria Davis, lives in Fircrest.
The UW program allows us to cover more ground for readers during the legislative session while (we hope) giving students valuable on-the-ground experience. Davis is working in our office on the Capitol campus. You'll be seeing her work on our website and in print. You can also follow her on Twitter.
