Let’s Meet Marcus!1

Today I met Marcus Mackey, a junior and now mass communications major at Morningside. With his focus on mass communication he hopes to become a sports broadcaster, but before settling on his major he changed it twice.¬†He comes from the southwest region of Iowa, and came to Morningside because it was far from home but also close enough that he cold go back home relatively easily if something came up being only a 3 hour drive away. Over the past two summer’s Marcus has worked at Fareway, a grocery chain located in the Midwest.

He¬†graduated from a school with a graduating class of 15 in 2015, 13 if you don’t count the foreign exchange students. Although he graduated from a very small school, Marcus was very involved in high school with speech contests, reader’s theater, and poetry and prose. Also, he is a dog person, but he doesn’t mind other animals.

    As I said in class, there’s no reason to include yourself in the story. Marcus is your focus. So, what is that focus? You have lots of interesting details, but what’s the big picture? The frame, so to speak.

    Coming up this week: Leads!
