Friedlein joins publications staff
John Friedlein, an award-winning former staff writer for three Kentucky newspapers, joined the publications staff in January as editorial assistant. He succeeds Tyler Young, who remains at Transylvania as part-time student media advisor while pursuing a master’s degree at Morehead State University.
Friedlein brings 14 years of newspaper and freelance writing experience to his new position. He was most recently a freelance writer and owner of a stoneware boutique in Louisville. Before that, he was a staff writer for The News-Enterprise in Elizabethtown, The Sentinel-News in Shelbyville, and The Kentucky Standard in Bardstown.
