This past Monday, 14 Broadcasting and Film Students from the WACC headed to Indianapolis for the 2018 Indiana Association of School Broadcasters Annual (IASB) Conference.  Special sessions included an impressive line up of Hoosier Radio/Television personalities, Professional Film Makers, the Senior VP Programming for iHeart Media, behind the scenes staff, college professors, and an IASB Alumni Panel (From IASB Award Winners to Working Professionals).  Students were able to ask lots of questions to learn more about their future careers and how to be successful.

Michael Kuhn is a reporter at WANE-TV, NewsChannel 15 in Fort Wayne. He graduated from Ball State University in December of 2016, but his passion for news started during his time at WCHS and the Warsaw Area Career Center. A 2013 WCHS graduate, Michael took Radio and TV 1 and 2 in his Junior and Senior years. He says the skills he learned in Mrs. Hopper's class helped lay a foundation that propelled him forward in college, and now in his career. He says anyone thinking about a career in media should also consider taking Mrs. Hopper's Radio and TV classes to help elevate their skills and better prepare them for their future.

Mrs. Hopper's Video Editing students filmed their "What's in the Box?" projects today. Students learn about scripting, filming techniques, and the editing process during the course of the semester.  This class is a great class for anyone interested in film, broadcasting, or just wanting another marketable skill for today's tech-savvy workplace.

On Friday, August 4th, nearly 300 people turned out to watch the red carpet movie premiere of John the Lion. Those in attendance were treated to an evening of laughs and some unexpected tears as the plot unfolded. In the movie, Chris Williams is a high school student struggling to relate in his history class. He is given an assignment to write out the life story of someone in his hometown who is over 70 years old. Chris just wants to make it through the assignment, but what he discovers is more than he could have ever imagined...
The movie’s director, recent WCHS graduate, Beau Eckel, enjoyed witnessing the emotions of the crowd first hand after working on the film for the past year as part of an independent study class. Following the showing, those in attendance waited in a long line to obtain the signatures of the cast and director. Comments such as “This hit home,” “I can’t believe a high school student made this,” and “Where can I get a copy of this to share with others” were heard.
