Kristin Will

Kristin Will was hooked on journalism starting in grade four when a class project requiring her to create a newspaper sparked her interest in the industry. That interest continued into high school, where Will was editor of South Hadley High School’s newspaper, Spotlight, and English classes were her favorite to attend.
Will attended Framingham State College from which she graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a concentration in journalism. There, too, she joined the newspaper, The Gatepost, writing and photographing. Will worked her way up the ranks to become the paper’s Associate Editor in her senior year. Following her graduation from college, Will dove into the world of freelancing, where she was able to contribute to eight of Turley Publications’ newspapers.
Now, as Editor of both the Town Reminder and Holyoke Sun, she is able to focus on South Hadley and Holyoke. When not sleuthing on assignment, Will can be found behind the lens of her camera or racking up miles on her bike. Drop by the office to say hello or submit news to your local paper run by a local lady.

A friend suggested he take his love of photography and do something he would enjoy in his retirement.
