The Daily-Freeman Journal is pleased to welcome Buena Vista University alumnus Courtney Sogard.

Sogard will be a part-time reporter for the DFJ. She said looks forward to getting out and wielding a camera, pen and paper in hand, getting some great photos and stories from the citizens of Hamilton County.

Sogard hails from Duncombe, where she now resides with her family — husband, Matt and daughter, Harper Lee.

Sogard graduated from Buena Vista University via the Fort Dodge campus in 2012, where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English. Sogard is an avid reader, loves going on family outings, and enjoys interior decorating.

“I can’t wait to start this next endeavor in my professional career and am so excited to become more involved within the community,” said Sogard, when asked what she looked forward to the most about the new job.

“We’re excited to have Courtney join our staff,” said Managing Editor Anne Blankenship. “She brings a fresh perspective and will be a great addition to our team.”
