When Kevin Hoyt stood up and walked across the stage at Moby Arena to receive his MBA diploma from Colorado State University in May, he in turn received a standing ovation. Hoyt left his wheelchair to accept the degree that inspired him to overcome his limitations and aspire to become an entrepreneur.
When the communications team here at CSU learned of Hoyt’s inspiring accomplishment, we knew we had to capture the moment and share it with the world, through all the channels available to us. In addition to the traditional news outlets of broadcast and print, our team of award-winning video team and social media professionals swung into action. The result has been more than a million views of the video of Kevin’s Walk to date.
