Daniel Pollock began reporting for The Puyallup Post in fall 2016. Journalism soon after became a passion. As a reporter, Pollock covered a wide variety of topics, from campus and community news to opinion pieces and movie reviews. In spring quarter, he took on the Managing Editor position, and now returns for the 2017-18 school year as Editor-in-Chief.
Pollock is a Running Start student in his second year at Pierce, pursuing an AA degree. After Pierce, he plans to transfer to a 4-year university.
Beyond journalism, Pollock also writes short stories, personal essays and screenplays. He is found cooking and eating food, writing, making movies and playing piano as often as his schedule allows. He also is a latte advocate and self-proclaimed film anthropologist.
Dana Montevideo is a first year reporter at The Puyallup Post. After realizing she wanted to add flavor and meaning to her experience at Pierce, she decided to apply for the newspaper. She has always found that communication through her writing was something that she enjoyed doing. Dana may also be considered a thespian as she is involved with the theatre department at Pierce. She is interested in all the arts from acting to movies to journalism to fashion. She is currently is struggling with what major she would like to pursue next year as a junior in college, and is unsure of what four year university she wishes to transfer to. For her time at Pierce she is looking for some sort of guidance for her future. All that she is sure of is she loves going out with her friends, horseback riding, being in nature and listening to old music.
