Earlier this month, (March) Mrs. Kowalewsky’s new broadcasting class at Onaway High School gathered to receive new digital media equipment that will give students an opportunity to learn about the field of broadcast media.

The newly created broadcast class was presented with cameras, microphones, computers and ‘Final Cut’ software, along with all the accessories that will make it possible for the class to film, produce and edit programming. The equipment was purchased through a grant from PIE&G, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative.

Student programming will be broadcast in Onaway on Sunrise Cable Network’s Channel 6. Also, in conjunction with the Student Broadcasting Program, the videos will be available online at www.MHSAAtv.com/Onaway.

This equipment is cutting edge technology that will allow the students to learn all aspects of producing a quality film project. Sunrise’s Rachel Woodard, Production Coordinator out that the ‘Final Cut’ software is “used by the pros in Hollywood to edit motion pictures so this software is limited only by whatever the students’ imaginations can come up with!”

Marty Mix added, that “As principal of Onaway High School, I sincerely thank PIE&G and Sunrise Cable for their generosity and support in providing our students with the opportunity to expand their learning experience. Already there is a buzz in our school about the future possibilities.”
