Photo of the Day: A Rare Commodity
Matthew Hoyt called the City-Times office eight times in one day. The following day, twice. The third day, four times.
His reason? He wanted a job. More specifically, he wanted a job at the Stevens Point City-Times.
“I was reading through your mission statement on your (web) site, and I was intrigued by your craving for the truth you don’t really get any place else,” said Hoyt, 18.
Hoyt, a senior at SPASH, has played varsity hockey since 2010, having earned a Varsity Academic Letter in 2013 and previously served as team captain. He is also active in the SPASH Science Club as well as Student Partners for Environmental Action Coalition, and has also volunteered as a bell ringer for the Salvation Army and Project Fresh Start.
The Stevens Point native recently moved with his family to Scandinavia and plans to attend the College of Liberal Arts in Minnesota next fall.
City-Times staff members were impressed with Hoyt’s persistence, personal presentation and intelligence. Moreover- this guy says he’s actually interested in writing about local politics. Our entire staff is much honored to have someone of Hoyt’s background and character on board.
Watch for Hoyt’s first article over the next week or so, but until then- help us welcome this young man into the honorable profession of journalism.
