I'm a native of Eastern Iowa. Born in Cedar Rapids and growing up in Mechanicsville, stepping into my role as a correspondent with The Gazette in August 2014 was almost like coming home. I'm a 2010 graduate of North Cedar and a 2014 Iowa State University grad. During my days at Iowa State, I wrote for the student publication, the Iowa State Daily and was also an intern at The Gazette in the summer of 2013. I'm always looking for feedback on my stories as well as what you, the readers, want to know. You can reach me on Twitter at @dylanmontz or by emailing me at montz.dylan@gmail.com. Thanks for stopping by to check out the Cyclone Country blog.
