Cassie Heeke

Cassie Heeke is joining The Gazette for the summer as the features/arts and entertainment intern. Originally from Jasper, Ind., she is majoring in journalism and political science at Indiana University, where she will be a senior in the fall.

Heeke previously interned with her hometown paper, the Dubois County Herald. As a board member for the IU chapter of Oxfam last semester, she worked on fundraising and promoting its GROW campaign. She hopes to remain involved with the organization.

She is a fan of alternative rock and folk music and managed to catch Jack White, one of her favorite musicians, at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.

When she isn't writing stories, Heeke enjoys keeping up on politics and reading. Her favorite book is "The Casual Vacancy" by J.K. Rowling and she is working her way through "Infinite Jest" by David Foster Wallace.
