There’s a new face serving Holmes and Washington counties’ top local newspapers this week.

Jacqueline Bostick joins the Washington County News and Holmes County Times-Advertiser as a staff reporter after getting her first journalism experience with The News Herald more than five years ago.

Bostick, 29, is a self proclaimed "military brat" and avid traveler and aims to report news from all sides. Her love for traveling abroad has brought home her love for the country and its democracy, which reflects in her insatiable desire to cover human interest stories.

In 2014, Florida Press Club acknowledged Bostick at The News Herald with two second place awards in the categories of hard feature and health care.

“We are excited to have Jacqueline Bostick join us as a reporter for the Washington County News and Holmes County Times-Advertiser,” said editor Carol Kent Wyatt. “She brings with her an award-winning journalistic talent and is eager to devote her enthusiasm to covering the important news, issues, and events of our local communities.”

When away from the newsroom, Bostick enjoys anything local – restaurants, books by local authors, networking and the beauty of the area’s trails and beaches.

Bostick is a graduate of Florida State University.
