What do you like best about your paper?
It's all about the people who make it possible. Dr. Justin Brent, who oversees all student media at PC, Dr. Kendra Hamilton, our faculty adviser, and especially our staff.
Our staff has done a great job on producing strong content for the PC community. A lot of them have gotten internships and opportunities by being able to publish content for us.
We also produce news-worthy content for the local community alongside the PC community. Since we're not in a metro area it's hard to get breaking news to write about on a consistent basis, sometimes we have do more with less and cover other nearby communities like Greenwood, Simpsonville, and Newberry.
What do you like best about your campus?
We have a tight-knit community where everyone knows each other. We are rebuilding our paper and our campus recognizes that. They are a big part of our success and we will continue to produce more content, recruit, and build that trust aspect between us and our campus community.
What's your favorite thing you've written about so far?
Without a doubt, it was when our baseball coach, Elton Pollock, had the baseball field renamed after him. It was fun to go in-depth on how Pollock was able to bring a Big South championship to the PC baseball program. It was really cool writing about how a coach was able to overcome a lot of obstacles to win at one of the toughest jobs in collegiate sports.
