There are KTSW employees that push it to the limit and further. Every month each of the station’s directors choose one or two people within their department that have stood out from their fellow employees.
These go-getters are recognized for their work and dedication with the honorary title of “Champion of the Month.”
I asked Adam Cook a few questions about winning last month’s award for his work in the Web content department.
Emily Parma: What is your major, position at KTSW and hobbies?
Adam Cook is a senior electronic media major with a minor in business administration and has been with KTSW for two semesters. Cook is a Web editor and writes a weekly video game review column.
EP: How do you feel about earning the “Champion of the Month” title?
Adam Cook: I was very surprised yet honored (to receive this award). It feels good that the time and hard work put in gets recognized.
When asked why Cook thinks he received the award, he made sure to point out that everyone at KTSW works equally as hard and that he does what he does because he likes helping others.
“Myself, like a lot of others, brought something new to the table,” said Cook. “I like to help people out, lend a hand to anyone who needs it. Everyone here works hard, and I like to help people who take on a huge work load.”
Cook’s hard work has been recognized and appreciated, and may be a key factor in him landing a job once he graduates from Texas State in December.
Cook talks about his goals in the near future.
“I want to get into the film industry or write for a TV series eventually,” he said. “It would be so fun to sit in a room full of creative minds and draw in viewers, to take them to another world for an hour or so.”
Even though Cook is leaving Texas State behind in just a month, he wishes to encourage people to join KTSW and thank someone who has motivated him to work so hard.
“I want to thank Jordan Gass-Poore’ because she has been patient, helpful, motivating and supportive,” he said. “I really recommend anyone with a creative mind or anyone with a media (or related) major to join KTSW.”
