Ballard News-Tribune reporter featured in alma mater's magazine

Ballard News-Tribune lead reporter and web editor Zachariah Bryan was recently given the opportunity to write (and star in) an article for his alma mater's magazine.

In Seattle Pacific University's etc Magazine, a prospective publication sent out to 50,000 high school students all over the U.S., Bryan writes about -- what else? -- things to do in Ballard. Though he had to keep it to activities under 21 (sorry wonderful breweries and great nightlife), he still had the opportunity to brag about a great deal, including Bitterroot BBQ, Senor Moose, Hot Cakes, the Ballard Locks, Golden Gardens and much more.

He also participated in what would be his first photo shoot ever, having had his photo taken at various landmarks, such as the old Ballard Carnegie Free Library and the Majestic Bay Theatre.

"I received a great education at Seattle Pacific University and it was wonderful to be able to write for their prospective magazine. I never imagined I would be given the chance," Bryan said. Bryan was an English Major with a Creative Writing Concentration and was the assistant news editor of the student newspaper, The Falcon.
