Lauren Reeves, a 2013 graduate of the University of Maine where she studied journalism and Spanish, is one of four finalists in Maine’s Credit Unions’ 2013 Young & Free Maine Spokester search.
Reeves, a Lovell, Maine native who recently moved to Windham after studying abroad in Spain, is competing for the chance to be an advocate for Maine’s 18- to 25-year-olds while representing Maine’s Credit Unions.
The Young & Free Maine Spokester will work full time, attending events, posting daily blog entries and creating weekly videos.
“I chose to apply for this job because it’s exactly what I know how to do and it’s what I love to do,” Reeves says. “I went to school for journalism and we focused heavily on digital media and backpack reporting which is the one-man-band type of reporting.”
The results of an online public vote that closed Tuesday will be considered in determining who gets the job.
The 2013 Spokester will be named Friday, June 21.
