Alumni Spotlight – Joe Spiering, Press Secretary for United States Representative Cindy Lummis (R-WY)

"I work for the sole Representative of Wyoming, Congressman Cynthia M. Lummis (R-WY) as the Press Secretary. My position requires excellent communication skills.I learned these skills during my education at Wyoming Catholic College.In my rhetoric and writing classes, I learned practical knowledge and had the chance to regularly practice my communication skills.By participating in the Outdoor Leadership Program, I learned the importance of good communication and how to work well with others. The truths that I learned in philosophy and theology classes are my aids to staying sane in this mad world—which is a pretty tall order. When I am thrown headlong into a sea of doubt or turmoil, I turn first to my solid formation in my Catholic faith. When the trials are in the form of intellectual doubt or confusion, the indelible and perennial philosophy I learned at Wyoming Catholic College consoles and strengthens me. Another important lesson from Wyoming Catholic College was that we should not reduce ourselves and others to the material. The human person is so much more than the sum of his bank accounts, his position in the workforce or the level of his social influence. We are meant for so much more."
