Two weeks ago we received a phone call from the Southwest Wake News. They wanted to do a story on my son Alex and his pen business. The reporter came to the house and interviewed him last week and we are told the story will be featured in this weeks paper which comes out on Wednesday. For those of you who do not receive this free paper you should be able to see the story on their web site: http://www.southwestwakenews.com/

The on-line edition is available!

That's awesome, Alex is going to be world renown before he can drive.
I went looking for the article, but quickly realized that it won't be up on the site until Wednesday :eusa_doh: Please keep this thread going or re-post so us with feeble minds can read about our favorite young pen turner.
How did SW. Wake News find out about Alex? Was this completely unsolicited ;)?

The paper was fed the story by the publicity manager of Triangle Woodworker's Association. Apparently, he also gave the story to a few other papers that ran it as an announcement.

Perhaps the larger publications will run the story, if it includes an interview with a very satisfied customer. :rolleyes: Hmmm, whose name comes to mind.....

Just pullin' you leg, George. Can I get an autographed copy?

Yes TWA has a position for publicity chairman in their by-laws. Until recently the position was unfilled or not worked. Larry Hendrick is the current chairman and doing a great job.



ALEX is my hero. :icon_thum When I grow up I want to be just like him. :wsmile:

Ok... this is getting out of hand. I just had some people here at work bring in the paper and say, "this kids pens look better than yours"! I had to admit to them that they were right. Is there no bounds to Alex's fame? :dontknow:

That's funny, two guys I work with brought in the article because they thought I would be interested in it, and thought I might know Alex. I was very proud to say I do.
Somebody's the talk of the town lately :icon_thum:icon_thum:icon_thum:icon_thum
