Hard work paid off for Rocket

Published by adviser, Author: Erica Kurvach - Commentary, Date: May 9, 2013

Well this year at the Rocket was a blast. I really enjoyed connecting with the campus more each week and learning how to be a better writer and reporter. I got a lot of practice in writing ledes and coming up with story ideas. One of the challenges that I faced were coming up with story ideas since Slippery Rock is a small and quiet town. I think that this challenge has helped me grow in abundance. Although we had a rough start this year, the paper worked out in the end. In addition to working as staff reporter, I recruited members for the new position, the Multimedia Content Producer. I thank Dr. Zeltner for helping me push the paper in this direction. Every week I would upload small videos onto The SRU Rocket Youtube channel to embed them into the Online Rocket. I am hoping that Alyssa Cirincione, the Multimedia Content Producer, will explore more hip ideas and expand in new media. Also, “getting the inside scoop” in the news section with Jon Janasik and Catie Clark was fun. I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for His love and for building relationships while working for this newspaper. I will definitely be taking this experience with me this summer for my internship and the rest of my career.
