Jane Herz joins Press staff as intern


Jane Herz is an incoming junior at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, but she’s no stranger to the Riverdale area.

One of the new summer interns at The Riverdale Press, Herz brings a lot of local charm to her community paper. She grew up in New York City, and is a graduate of Ethical Culture Fieldston.

At college, she is a staff writer for The Wesleyan Argus, the school’s bi-weekly student newspaper. She’s also editorial director for Wesleyan’s chapter of Spoon University, an online college publication about food.

Herz is majoring in English, with a concentration in creative writing. In the future, she hopes to continue writing for newspapers, particularly in the areas of local culture events and crime.

The Press is welcoming a larger-than-usual slate of interns to the paper this summer, with Lauren Schuster already on-board, and at least two more expected to arrive in the newsroom later this summer.
