Spotlight : Aaron Gatson

This week I spotlighted a new man on campus but he may catch your attention for many ways than one. Aaron Gatson is a transfer student from Baylor who is pursuing a dream in writing and would hopefully want to write for the Shorthorn the University of Texas at Arlington newspaper. I followed him around a couple of days and got to make a new friend as well as meeting his close companion Keeper. As I go through my last semester here I wanted to speak with someone who could inspire us all to pursue our dreams no matter what obstacles may come our way.
