Kate Prince, a Normandy native, is one of seven students selected for the inaugural class of Seigenthaler Scholars at Middle Tennessee State University, and has been assigned to the initial Federal Judicial Reporting Project in Nashville.

Prince, who graduated from Cascade High School in 2006, is a senior in the Mass Communication College, dual majoring in Electronic Media Journalism and Criminal Justice with a minor in Speech and Theatre. She is the daughter of Ricky and Kay Prince.

The Federal Judicial Reporting Project team is writing about the activities of the Federal District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, including trial coverage and all of the work of the federal criminal justice system, the bankruptcy court, and other federal agencies, including the United States Attorney's office, the FBI, DEA, ATF, and ICE.

The reporters are working as full-time, professional jouralists operating out of the newsroom of The Tennessean newspaper, which is publishing their news and feature reporting, as well as photographs and videos for the website.

Prince was an associate producer for MTSU's Channel 10 news program, MT10 News, in the spring of this year, and also interned with State Senator Eric Stewart and the Rutherford County Public Defender's Office throughout the summer.

Alongside the Seigenthaler program, Prince interns with News Channel 5 in Nashville.

She transferred to MTSU in 2008 from Motlow State Community College in Tullahoma and will graduate in December.
