Libby Carroll and Kira Dewey are Good Faith Media’s Ernest C. Hynds Jr. Interns for summer 2022, beginning their internship June 1.

This is the sixth group of interns since GFM’s internship program was launched in the fall semester of 2020. Brief reflections from previous interns about their experience can be found here.

Carroll is a sophomore at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, pursuing a University Scholars Bachelor of Arts degree, focusing on professional writing and rhetoric, art history and liberal arts. Following undergraduate studies, she plans to attend law school and pursue a career in human rights advocacy.

“I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to expand my skills as a writer and continue my education on issues of justice through the Ernest C. Hynds Jr. Internship,” Carroll said. “While I am eager to grow in experience, I especially look forward to thinking and writing deeply about pressing issues through the lens of my faith.”

Dewey is a student at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in English, with a creative writing minor, and has an anticipated graduation date of May 2025.

“I am thrilled to have been chosen for the Ernest C. Hynds Jr. Internship!” Dewey said. “Through this opportunity, I hope to improve my writing skills, connect with fellow authors and gain experience in the publishing industry. I especially look forward to learning how other Christian authors share their faith through their writing in today’s secularized world.”

The internship program was established with an initial naming gift from the foundation of First Baptist Church of Athens, Georgia, where Ernest Hynds was a beloved member. He was a longtime professor and department head in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia.

“The Ernest Hynds internship program has been an incredible success, with high quality interns gaining valuable experience and contributing in substantive ways to Good Faith Media’s resources,” said GFM CEO Mitch Randall. “Our staff is excited to work with Libby and Kira this summer.”
