The Slater of November is Mason Flowers for his ability to quickly and consistently write articles for a variety of sections. Flowers is a sophomore Finance major and joined The Slate at the beginning of his freshman year. Since joining, Flowers has written for most sections but began writing consistently for the Sports section during baseball season in the spring, which lead him to become an assistant sports editor.
“I just enjoy writing in my free time, and I feel like I contribute to something substantial,” Flowers said. Over the past three months, and truly his entire time in The Slate, Flowers never fails to turn in articles as soon as he writes them. Flowers said he does not like to procrastinate, which is why he writes his pieces as soon as the events are over.
“Got what I needed, got out, got it in,” Flowers laughed, joking about how quickly he writes his pieces.
Flowers has always enjoyed watching sports, which started with his family. “Any free time I have, there is always sports on,” Flowers said. His favorite sport to watch will “always be baseball,” Flowers said, and his favorite team is the Pittsburgh Pirates, despite living in a Philadelphia Phillies household.
On campus, Flowers said his favorite sport to cover is volleyball because of how back and forth the game is. Flowers also enjoys playing disc golf on the recreation fields when the weather prevails and his course load lightens up.
While still thinking about his future, Flowers is considering entering the world of personal finance. Whatever he does, “I am easily always going to watch sports,” Flowers said.
The Slate management staff would like to recognize Flowers for his quality work and efficiency with The Slate. As Slater of the Month, the entire staff congratulates him on his accomplishments and looks forward to his continued involvement.
