He has gone on to become a news editor and copy editor.
Observer advisor Mary Jo Shafer praised Taveras as dedicated and hard-working.
“He has an innate talent both journalistically and in creative writing,” she said. “He’s very descriptive. It’s nice to see a student with that natural ability who has the motivation that he does.”
Taveras is thinking about pursuing a bachelor’s degree after NECC and isn’t sure whether he will make journalism a career, though he says he’s intrigued by the idea.
The news business can always use people with spunk and talent, but we wish Taveras well whatever path he follows.
If he does choose journalism, he’ll know he is following in the footsteps of a real pro.
