Jill Itzen

A familiar face is joining The Grundy Register staff for the summer. Area native Jillian Itzen, who graduated from GCHS in 2016, has joined the team and is taking on a position as summer intern at the newspaper, where she will hone her skills in advertising, marketing and graphic design.

 

Itzen just finished up her junior year at Iowa State University, where she is majoring in advertising with a minor in design studies. She’s been involved in the Iowa State Daily newspaper on campus, and held a position as Advertising Director for Trend Magazine - ISU’s premier fashion and lifestyle publication.

 

Itzen says she’s ready to jump in, and can’t wait to put her skills to use at her hometown newspaper.

 

“The opportunity [to intern here] really fell into my lap, and I was excited for a chance to work here in Grundy Center,” she said. “I already know a lot of people here in the community, but I’m excited to work with them on their advertising and marketing needs, and help them further their business while getting some real world, hands on experience in the industry.”
