The Rocket

Stephen Cukovich
As I enter my second year with The Rocket, I am grateful to be an editor after spending last year as a contributor. I gained a lot of experience meeting new people through interviews with coaches, and learning from my fellow Rocket members. Cody Nespor, who was my sports editor when I was a contributor, helped me a lot when I first started out. I would always bombard him with texts all the time. I never felt afraid to ask him or anyone questions because everyone who works here is amazing. It is great to still have Cody around, especially as our EIC. Now that I am an editor I have a little more responsibility of course, and that is why we get paid. In my mind though the pay is bonus to me because I would do this job for free simply for the experiences I am going to get this coming year. Working in the sports section will bring out the best in me because I live for sports. What I am looking forward to the most this year is reporting on football for The Rocket because it is simply the sport I know and love the most. Overall, I feel very fortunate to be part of The Rocket in any capacity in order get as must experience as I can before I go out into the real world.
