"This grant has opened up more doors than I ever expected. The students are now creating the on-line videos for our newspaper, instead of me, and they are very good at it. They are enjoying the green-screen effects and the interviewing process. I have two students who actually want to further their knowledge with the movie-making process. The students being interviewed, love it as well. They truly enjoy to hear and see themselves and their friends on our Jacket Journal. I have many more ideas for this grant and can't wait to work on them over the summer and get them rolling next year!"
"Thank you so so much for all the equipment and software - I could not have opened up a class where the students do the creative work without this grant!"
