Meet Vol State's New Social Media Writer

Hello, Volunteer State Community College!  I’m Gloria Cortes, Vol State’s new social media writer and a sophomore majoring in mass communications. 

Reading and writing are two of my favorite pastimes, so for the last two semesters, I worked at Vol State’s student newspaper, The Settler.  When I’m not going to class or working as a writer, I teach high school marching band percussion.  I thought this new writing position would combine things I enjoy with a new environment that would challenge and cultivate my skills.  As most people have experienced, working with others can sometimes be stressful and dreadful, but through my experiences as a writer, teacher and student, I found a passion for helping people.  The purpose of this blog is to inform and entertain viewers about Vol State, so don’t be afraid to comment your opinions, suggestions, or experiences.  As an online voice for Vol State, any feedback from members of its community would be greatly appreciated.  You can send any story ideas to gcortes@volstate.edu.


With the help and guidance of my teachers and those who believed in me, I’ve matured as a writer and young adult, but like any other college student, I still make mistakes and have room to improve.  I’m looking forward to writing about and growing with you, Vol State.  Good luck with the upcoming school year, and go Pioneers!- Gloria Cortes
