Abbie Bennett is the newest member of South Charlotte Weekly.
Bennett, a recent graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will work with the paper as a staff writer.
She attended UNC Chapel Hill to study English, but after joining The Daily Tar Heel realized journalism is where she needs to be.
“It taught me I had an aptitude I didn’t know about, (and) that I really loved journalism and working with the really amazing people that come out of that paper,” Bennett said.
She’s previously worked with the Fayetteville Observer and Fort Bragg Paraglide before coming to Charlotte. Her family lives in St. Louis.
