Beth Butler

Beth Butler came to the Stark campus, and to teaching, in 2004. She started her advertising career while still in college, working as an ad copywriter for radio and TV stations in Amarillo, Texas, her hometown.

Somewhere along the way - she can’t remember why or how - she turned to journalism. She spent a year and a half as a copy editor before being promoted to news editor for Amarillo’s afternoon paper.

In 1997, she interviewed with The Maui News while vacationing. When the job offer came, she took the plunge and went farther from home than she ever thought she would.
