Renee Yan
Renee Yan is our new reporter for Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake. As our paper continues to grow we were able to hire a reporter to share more local news with our local readers.

We are so excited to have Renee join us from our sister paper in the Sugar Land and Missouri City area in Houston. She graduated from the University of Texas in Arlington where she studied journalism before coming to Community Impact Newspaper. Even more exciting for us is that Renee grew up in Keller and spent a lot of her time in our edition’s coverage area.

Renee is smart and has a passion for journalism and helping our readers understand more about the communities they live in. I cannot wait for you to meet her, so be sure to introduce yourself when you see her around.
