Scotty Martin: Reporter
May 31, 2019
Scotty Martin began writing for the Cardinal Times his freshman year with the Intro to Mass Communications class, along with his friend and fellow CT staff member, Alex Paskill.
“As a writer, it taught me a lot about how to connect with your readers, making stories mean more than just words on a page,” says Martin.
“I would say my favorite memory would be when the whole Cardinal Times and Beyond the Flock [magazine] staff went down to San Francisco to the [JEA National] Journalism Convention. We bonded a lot and it was just a great time with great people,” he said.
Martin is very passionate about basketball and football and has played both during his time at Lincoln. He also enjoys outdoor activities, including fishing, sports, and camping.
Martin is also the president of the Christian Students United Club.
Two fun facts about Martin is that he loves bubble tea and drinks it at least twice a week. Occasionally, Martin indulges in poetry writing, a skillset that runs down his family line.
“I believe that I was destined for writing, left behind by my great great grandmother’s cousin, Mark Twain,” adds Martin.
After high school, Martin is planning to attend Colorado State University and will study apparel design and merchandising which includes marketing and entrepreneurship.
