Kit Grode joined the West Central Tribune as the features and sections editor in July 2021. As editor, she pitches, plans, and edits the West Central Tribune's special sections, including the weekly Showcase and Extra sections.
Kit began her journalism career as a copy editor with The Grand Island Independent in Grand Island, Nebraska, and worked her way up to the associate editorship by 2018, taking on the additional responsibility of pitching, planning and designing The Independent's special sections.
A lover of words from a young age, Kit decided to pursue that passion by creating a personalized degree program in college. She earned her bachelor's in publishing from Hastings College (Hastings, Nebraska) in 2014, and a graduate certificate in social media and public relations from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2019.
An avid Washington Capitals and Minnesota Whitecaps fan, Kit enjoys traveling both near and far to attend hockey games in her downtime. When not watching hockey or reading up on hockey history, you may find her writing or bookbinding or exploring what treasures Minnesota's small-town shops have to offer.
Kit speaks English.
