Julia Thomas and Henri Gendreau have joined the news team at the Bainbridge Island Review as interns.

Thomas, who will be a senior at Bainbridge High School this year, will contribute to the newspaper throughout her final year at BHS. She will focus on features, general assignment stories and help out on sports.

Thomas has been a member of the high school newspaper, the Spartan Standard, for the past two years. Last year, she was named features editor and will continue her role as news editor in the coming school year. Thomas also writes for Food Safety News, an online newspaper dedicated to reporting issues regarding food safety.

“I am very excited to be a part of the Review and am happy to have this opportunity,” Thomas said.

Gendreau, a 2012 graduate of BHS, will contribute to the newspaper as a special projects reporter and will assist with the newspaper’s election coverage.

He worked previously at the Spartan Standard for four years, serving as one of its editors-in-chief for the 2011—2012 school year.

“I am happy to be given this opportunity,” Gendreau said. “I look forward to contributing to the Review.”

Gendreau will end his stint at the end of August to attend Kenyon College in Ohio.

“It’s great to have such talented young journalists join the newsroom,” said Review editor Brian Kelly.

“Julia and Henri represent the future of journalism, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have them help out their hometown paper as they start their careers,” he said.
