Haley ResizedWhen Haley Whisennand isn’t in the College of Journalism School finishing off her last two semesters, you may find her out and about with a camera in hand shooting for Racer X illustrated.



“I know that Nebraska isn’t a top area for motocross riders, but I get some pretty good shots anyways.”

Along with interning at Racer X, Haley has also spent some time as an intern with University Communications and is currently sports information director for the men’s gymnastics team. Even with so much going on Haley waits for the days when she can go back to her hometown of Colorado Springs and hit the slopes.

“I have skied at least 50,000 vertical feet every year for the past four years!”

She began to ski at the age of 2 and has not stopped since. It has become a passion of hers and this sense of excitement and adventure is what has carried her into journalism.

“I want to deal with social media, I think it is a big part of journalism’s present and future.”

She hopes to one day be a social media management or consultant after graduating in the Spring.
