After driving 2,100 miles, covering six Western states in a 53 hour span, I bring to you my first entry in Huskie Happenings. My name is Matt Scheerer and I'm the newest Assistant Media Relations Director for NIU, covering women's soccer, men's tennis and baseball.
I come to DeKalb from
Portland State University and am a native of Vancouver, Wash. There I covered
women's soccer, track and tennis, along with producing the department's video
content for their website and Facebook fan page. Before PSU, I was an intern in
Harvard University's Athletic Communications Office. I'm looking forward to bringing
my experience in new media platforms to promote and publicize Huskie Athletics.
While I could probably write a book about all the driving I've done the last two weeks, a North Dakota wedding included, and my experience in Sidney, Neb., the birthplace of Cabelas - The World's Foremost Outfitter - I'm keeping the entry short and simply using this as an introduction. So if you see me at a game, say hello and introduce yourself.
Until next time, Go Huskies.
