Student journalist takes on role as cafeteria critic - and cultivates a crowd
A high school senior in Pennsylvania is drawing rave reviews for his role as the school's cafeteria critic. Rick Seltzer publishes his opinions in the school's monthly newspaper, and uses a rating system of up to five "sporks," to rate the cuisine.
Seltzer began writing the reviews as a junior at the urging of classmates who found his rants about the cafeteria's offerings entertaining. His columns have since become some of the most well-read pieces in the school's newspaper.
However, not everyone is a fan. The school's food-service director says she would like the chance to teach him more about how the cafeteria operates.
