(BELOIT,Kan.) — He has hundreds of “Twitter” followers and has interviewed numerous celebrities. The catch; he's not a Hollywood journalist -- rather a student at Beloit High School.
It all starts during Mrs. Dean’s fourth period journalism class. During that time students are assigned to assemble the “Trojan Times”, the student newspaper. Heading the feature section is junior Eric Pahls.
"I’ve learned to ask follow up questions and that’s a big thing for me instead of just going down the list and asking the next question," says Pahls.
The follow up question for Eric, what makes his column in the school paper so special?
"I interviewed Larry King and the month after that Gene Simmons," Pahls answered.
From icons of rock and roll, to the media giants, Eric Pahls somehow finds a way to get their interviews into the “Trojan Times”.
