Courtney Teague was a reporting fellow for Civil Beat.
She graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with degrees in English and philosophy. Though Courtney’s phobia of weather below 70 degrees brought her to Oahu from Southern California in 2013, she’s come to love the island’s beaches, cuisine and culture.
When she began at Civil Beat as an intern in January 2016, Courtney continued to write about university matters such as its notorious struggle with deferred maintenance costs and energy use. Courtney has also covered education, infrastructure, and public policy at city and state levels. As news editor for campus paper Ka Leo O Hawaii, she led a staff of reporters, followed key UH issues and contributed to the editorial board.
Courtney covers a wide range of local news, focusing on state government, education and women’s issues.
