John Grinvalds grew up in Yutan, Nebraska. While studying at Yutan High School, his journalism teacher inspired him to pursue storytelling in multiple mediums. John stayed with journalism because it allows him to learn a little bit about everything.

He worked as a staff writer for the Beatrice Daily Sun, telling the stories of Gage County and its residents. John joined the 10/11 NOW news team in August 2022 and is excited to learn more about what stories make the Lincoln community tick.
