A new project on campus is looking for students who are fulfilling TCU’s mission statement in their own personal way.

Frogwire is a project that launched this semester with the goal of featuring students who are living the mission statement in their everyday lives.

They had 16 students featured on their website as of Sept. 29.

Spencer Traver, a junior marketing major, is one of them. Traver talked about how God has used him to impact the TCU community through various platforms, such as his book “21 Promises” and his Twitter account @traverbros.

“TCU embodies a diligent, loving community where I find people making an impact everywhere I go,” Traver said. “TCU’s mission statement allows for young men and women like the Frogwire team and their interviewees to make a difference.”

Cade Bethea, a sophomore strategic communications major, was featured because of his personal clothing line Southern and Thankful as well as his involvement on campus. Bethea said the Frogwire team is passionate and is furthering students’ involvement with TCU’s mission statement.

“Frogwire does a great job at being everything the mission statement wants us to be,” Bethea said. “It’s obvious they are passionate about this site and showcasing all the good students are doing on campus.”

Both Traver and Bethea said they have received nothing but positive feedback since being featured on Frogwire’s website.

The Frogwire team, a group of seven students who wish to remain anonymous, said some of their goals include being a positive platform for TCU and providing a “raw, authentic feel” to their stories.

The founder of Frogwire said the team decided to remain anonymous in order to highlight the featured students rather than to praise the team members for starting the project.
