The Horizon

Paige Thompson
Hello (it's me)! My name is Paige Thompson and I am the Co-Editor-In-Chief of your awesome student newspaper! I’ve been “makin’ journalisms” for about six years now, but time flies when you’re having fun and doing something you love, am I right? I was born and raised in Floyds Knobs and graduated from Floyd Central High School where my journalism career began as a staff reporter for my school newspaper. I love telling people's stories and can’t wait to see where journalism takes me in the future.
When I’m not working on Horizon-related things I write, read and consume as much music as possible (which includes listening to a lot of Beyonce, of course). I love dogs, mine is a 3 year-old rescue named Lou and he's the best. One of my nicknames growing up was “Paige in a cage,” which originated from my mother finding me hiding inside my childhood dog’s kennel.

Paige Thompson, Editor-in-Chief (Spring 2016); Managing Editor (Fall 2015); General Assignment Editor (Spring 2015); Staff Reporter (Fall 2014)
