Staff Picks: spring break


As we are packing our bags for pending spring break travel, the topic for this week’s Staff Picks will be where each of our staff members is traveling and what they are looking forward to as they partake in some R&R from Transy. If you have any topic suggestions that you would like to hear from us about, please email us at

Taylor Mahlinger, Editor-in-Chief: Nashville, TN and Owensboro, KY

“I will be heading to Nashville with three of my friends for four days! It is one of my favorite cities because there is always something fun to do, not to mention the incredible food and music. After that, I will be traveling home to Owensboro for the remainder of the break to spend some time with my family.”

Abby Stone, Managing Editor: Nashville, TN and Burlington, KY

“For my first official spring break trip, I will be going to Nashville! I have never been and am extremely excited to try all the famed food and listen to some amazing music. After a few days, I will be traveling home to Burlington for some much needed rest.”

“I am going to Chicago to see a concert and then back home for some relaxation.
