Celia Shortt

Celia Shortt this week joined the news staff of The Newnan Times-Herald.

Her duties will include general assignment reporting and education news.

Originally from Virginia, Shortt has lived in the Coweta County area just over a year and a half. She earned her bachelor of arts degree in broadcasting from Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio. After working in the radio industry for several years in Tennessee, she relocated back to Ohio and earned her master’s degree from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. 

While in grad school, she represented Ohio University through a teaching fellowship at the University of Guyana, in Georgetown, Guyana, South America, as part of a collaborative effort among USAID, Ohio University, and the Centre for Communication Studies at the University of Guyana, with additional involvement from the Higher Education for Development and the American Council on Education. The aim of the project was to improve journalism in Guyana. 

Since being in Georgia, she has worked as publications editor for the U.S. office of Operation Mobilization in Tyrone.

“I’m very excited to join the Times-Herald staff and am looking forward to growing as a journalist, reporter, and writer,” Shortt said. “Most importantly, I’m looking forward to building relationships with the people and community here in Newnan.”
