Just in time for the holidays, Nik Streng is joining the staff of Idaho Education News.
Streng comes to EdNews from the Argus Observer in Ontario, Ore., where he covered sports, education and courts. In over four years at the Argus Observer, Streng covered multiple state championship teams and NCAA Division I athletes. When COVID-19 hit the country, Streng transitioned from covering sports to following public education as it fought the effects of a global pandemic.
Throughout 2020, Streng collaborated with several of the best education journalists in Oregon, so parents and educators had access to accurate and timely information about what was happening on his beat in eastern Oregon.
Streng graduated with his bachelors degree in creative writing from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore., in 2013 and graduated with his master’s in journalism from the University of Oregon.
Streng’s emphasis with EdNews will be to give a voice to the students and parents of the Gem State, especially its many historically underserved communities.
When he’s not working for EdNews, Streng will continue to be the assistant wrestling coach at Ontario High. He also coaches at The Factory Wrestling Club in Fruitland and Team Cobra in Ontario, Ore.
Idaho Education News is a non-profit, online news organization launched eight years ago. The experienced staff of journalists reports primarily on Idaho public education, but also reports on national education issues and their impact on Idaho. Idaho Education News is a public awareness service where parents, patrons, educators and lawmakers can find the most accurate and useful information on issues that affect Idaho’s children and their future.
