Megan Middleton began her career as many do – with an internship. One thing led to another and she eventually landed her first job as a reporter for the Denton Record-Chronicle – all while finishing up her bachelor’s degree at the University of North Texas. After nine dedicated months and a job search, Middleton moved on to being a regional reporter for the Tyler Morning Telegraph, where she was responsible for covering news in multiple counties in the area.
From there, Middleton narrowed her focus into education, covering Tyler ISD’s many achievements, such as hiring a new superintendent, as well as its tragedies – like when a teacher was stabbed on a campus. She continued to advance in her career, quickly becoming city editor. After dedicating more than three and a half years to the position, she decided to return to her alma mater to earn a master’s degree.
While enrolled in the Mayborn Graduate Institute of Journalism, Middleton served as a teaching assistant for professors Neil Foote and Koji Fuse. She graduated in 2015 with her master’s in journalism and a graduate academic certificate in public relations.
Since graduating from the Mayborn, Middleton has worked for Crowley ISD, first as a communications specialist, and now as its multimedia manager.
