klemm carrieMason County Press welcomes the addition of Carrie Klemm to our editorial team. Carrie will serve as a correspondent, writing about various news and social topics around Mason County.

Carrie is a graduate of Ludington High School. She earned a degree in English, specializing in creative writing, from Michigan State University. She was born and raised in Mason County and comes from a long line of storytellers, including her grandfather, the late “Big George” Wilson.

“I’m a local. I love Ludington and Mason County and love being in ‘the know.’” Carrie says. “I’m looking forward to digging in deeper to topics around the area.”

Carrie is well known in the Mason County music scene. Her singing abilities have made her one of the most requested performers in the local entertainment scene. Her work experience includes working as the communication coordinator for Lake Michigan Carferry (the third generation in her family to work for the carferries) and most recently as a title examiner/team leader for Western Land Services.

“I love history and working for those two companies gave me the ability to put that love of history to use,” she says.

“We’re excited to have someone with Carrie’s enthusiasm and talent onboard,” says Rob Alway, editor-in-chief. “MCP has gained a reputation of being the top online news and information source in Mason County and we are ready to kick it up a few notches. Adding Carrie is certainly a great way of achieving that goal.”

Carrie will also be submitting regular blogs of her observations on life around the county. She also has her own blog, Carried Away, which is at www.carsuek.tumblr.com. Look for Carrie’s contributions to MCP’s Facebook and Twitter sites as well.
