National Magazine Publishes Student Article

MC Student Charles HoehaverAn article and photographs by a McPherson College student were recently featured by a national publication in its online magazine. Automobile Magazine, part of the MotorTrend publication group, published the work of Charles Hoehaver, a current student at the college.

During a visit to campus by one of the magazine’s contributing editors, Hoehaver was asked to cover the annual student-organized car show. The result was the article titled, “Nine Cool Cars from the 2018 McPherson College CARS Club Motoring Festival,” along with several photographs. Hoehaver of Auburn, Alabama, is majoring in automotive communications.

“Opening doors to high profile learning experiences outside of the classroom is an opportunity for many McPherson College students,” President Michael Schneider said. “And, many of these experiences result in employment opportunities when these students graduate.”

Among the 2018 McPherson College graduates, 88 percent who were employed, had jobs in their major prior to commencement and 64 percent reported having a job or graduate school plans prior to commencement, compared to a national average of 21 percent.
