Betsy Simon joins The Dickinson Press as reporter

Betsy Simon of Carroll, Iowa, has joined the staff as a reporter for The Dickinson Press.

She will be responsible for news beats related to the military, St. Joseph's Hospital, Public Service Commission and other state entities as needed.

"I was looking for a change, a new place I'd never been before," she said. "I like it so far, the people seem really nice, but I haven't been through a winter yet."

She also will cover communities in Dunn County, Hettinger County and Stark County, including Belfield, Gladstone and Richardton.

A native of Versailles, Ohio, Simon graduated with a degree in English from the University of Dayton in Ohio.

She started her journalism career by working for a weekly newspaper at Brandenburg, Ky., and then a daily newspaper, The Sentinel-Record, in Hot Springs, Ark. Her most recent employment was working as a reporter for the Daily Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa.
