Student news

The TV-I students just completed their class PSAs and are working on a music video. The students will create the song, writing the music and the lyrics, for the music video.  Three students from Heritage High are working on videos about a poetry event and also a STEM event that took place at their school.

The TV-II students are working on videos covering the last Woodside High pep rally and also a promotional video for JROTC at Menchville High.  These will serve as their senior projects.  They will also complete a "résumé reel" highlighting their best work, which can be used when applying for internships or jobs.

A crew of Telecom grads and students livestreamed soccer from Todd Stadium for the first time. Menchville took on Woodside, and Telecom provided the livestream, camera work, and announcers.
