"I have learned so much during my time so far at PHC taking classes with Dr. Sillars. Small class sizes and the fact that you have direct input from a veteran reporter on your stories have helped me to hone my skills and get my first internship after my freshman year. "

—Evie (Fordham) Solheim,'18
