At your service

Doug Kojetin has worked as a member of Bethel’s Facilities Management team for four and a half years, but he serves the community with more than his handyman skills. By Jamie Hudalla Doug Kojetin has green, blue, black and shiny keys. All kinds, he tells the Child Development Center kids, who have no clue what they unlock. But they like how the keys jangle, and they like “Mr. Doug” even more. For nearly two years, Kojetin has spent one or two days a week having lunch with them in their tiny red chairs. He cuts his breaks short so he can eat shredded beef tacos and read books to them about David and Goliath or the alphabet. This isn’t part of Kojetin’s job description as a residential maintenance specialist at Bethel, but he makes time for snowblowing paths for the children to walk and capping all the sharp bolts on… Keep Reading

Keeping the ’90s alive

Sophomore Zach Fisk runs an Instagram Clothing account that will one day lead to a brick and mortar presence. By Diana Clark It was all about the hunt. For 5-year-old Zach Fisk, it was about the hunt for Fisher-Price Rescue Hero action figures that were no longer being made. His parents, Paul and Heather Fisk, started taking him around to different thrift stores to find these toys. “It was a hunt. The joy of finding something,” Fisk’s mother, Heather, said. Now at 19 years-old, sophomore business major with an entrepreneurial focus, Fisk has turned that hunt into an Instagram-run clothing store called Thrift-fil-a where he buys and sells used vintage clothing. Fisk grew up in Bothell, Washington not far from Seattle. Besides starting to buy toys and electronics from thrift stores at a young age, Fisk had a natural knack for selling too. “I’ve always been a little thrifter,” Fisk… Keep Reading
