Chris Boyette (BA ’10)

“I rely on my English degree from UNCG every day, but it goes beyond grammar, diction and syntax. As I tell news stories, help reporters shape stories and decide what stories we cover, I draw on my education in the fundamentals of storytelling and what it means for a narrative to be interesting, characters compelling and ideas clearly presented.
As I began my career I combined this education with lessons first learned in the department’s Fundamentals of Newswriting¬†class and my own experiences in newsgathering and reporting to strive for honest, impactful and engaging journalism.
And who knows? Maybe I’ll still write that novel someday.”
