Broadcasting has changed dramatically since I volunteered to help with the news studio in our brand new high school. The program started out with student volunteers, but I soon realized we needed much more time to turn things from students just reading announcements on camera, to hosting a morning news program. We have come a long way since that first news cast. In fact, the greatest strides have occurred the past ten years because of dedicated equipment and professional grade software, and because we have a year one and year two class, with opportunities for students to serve as lab assistants and interns.
Check out some of the student projects marking our progress along the way. You will see one of the entries from the Frederick Supermarket of Cars commercial contest (we placed 3rd), to other class projects and contest submissions. Through it all, students have been able to develop not only their creative potential and video camera knowledge, they have learned to work as a team.
I look forward to seeing this program grow even more!
