Northwest EXPLORER education reporter Renee Schafer Horton will be leaving the paper August 22. She has been selected to co-author a book about the Catholic Church and said she couldn't pass up the opportunity.

Horton will still contribute to the paper, writing occasional features about area churches.

The new education reporter, Laura Marble, will be joining the staff Sept. 8.

Marble joins the EXPLORER from The Island Packet newspaper in Hilton Head, S.C., where she won several awards for her writing.
