Mathew WorthingtonBarnes, Marketing

Hi, my name is Mathew WorthingtonBarnes and this will be my third year of Torch. I started the second semester of my freshman and I have been here ever since. I am the current marketing and advertising editor. That means I am responsible for getting people and businesses do give us money for things. This is one of the best classes I have ever done and I wouldn't change it for the world. Something interesting about me is that I have hand-made two knives from just flat steel.
