Jackson joins CCLP
staff as newest reporter
By LYNETTE SOWELL_
Corrisa Jackson is the newest
full-time reporter at the Copperas
Cove Leader-Press and she brings a
youthful enthusiasm to the current
The Harker Heights alum is a
2012 graduate of the University of
North Texas, where she earned a de-
gree in journalism and English. She
recently returned to the Central Texas
area and accepted the position at the
Leader-Press last week.
Jackson first realized she wanted to be a
journalist when she began writing for the North
Texas Daily her junior year. “I had been taking
journalism courses and going down that track,
but I wasn’t sure I wanted to continue down that
path,” said Jackson. “When I learned
about reporting and actually started do-
ing it, I realized I loved learning about
people and sharing what I know.”
The campus of UNT is larger than
Copperas Cove with a population of
more than 35,000 students. The North
Texas Daily releases on Tuesday
through Friday schedule, so Jackson is
used to the urgent pace of newspaper
“I loved writing feature pieces,
anything that could let readers know
about the awesome things happening in their
communities,” said Jackson.
Jackson plans to carry the same mindset as
she takes the desk at the Leader-Press. “Em
looking forward to learning more about hard
news, expanding our features, and meeting won-
derful people in Copperas Cove,” she said.

those looking to purchase

• Verify the tickets are re-
al. If buying online, ask to see
a picture of the tickets so you
can confirm the seats match
up with the venue. If your
friends already have tickets,
you can also compare and

as the ones you want to buy.
