Pulse Multi-Media is proud to welcome Acorn High School junior MeKinzie Kyle as an intern for the Fall 2017 semester. The 80-hour paid internship is made possible through the Arkansas Broadcasters Association.
“Kyle is a stellar student and we are grateful she accepted the opportunity,” said Pulse General Manager LeAnn Dilbeck. “She has shown her leadership abilities and eagerness to learn.”
Kyle serves as the AHS yearbook editor, vice president of communications for FCCLA, and vice president of the FBLA. She is a member of the National Honor Society, FFA, and was selected as a youth-cabinet member for Senator Boozman.
Kyle has also received numerous awards including four President’s Awards for Educational Excellence, four English Academic Excellence Awards, four History Studies Academic Excellence Awards, and Jostens National Program of Excellence Award.
Kyle’s internship at Pulse Multi-Media embodies Ouachita River School District’s desire for business partnerships within the community that exposes students to real-life work experience and local professionals.
During her internship, Kyle has already been providing news coverage and operating the board for Mena Bearcat football broadcasts. She will continue to learn recording and production, traffic, minor programming and sales.
