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.

Warsaw IN — A 30 second PSA entitled “Every Day” by Caleb Childers, a Warsaw Area Career student in Angela Hopper’s television production class, has been named one of ten finalists in The Greatest Save 2017 Teen PSA Contest. Caleb’s public service announcement will become part of a national teen safety resource.

This spring high school students from Major League Baseball towns and other cities around the country were invited to take part in The Greatest Save Teen PSA National Program with winners from the various MLB regions named in the first round of judging. The ten Finalists were the winning entries from high schools in Long Island, New York City, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Tampa, Miami, Huntsville AL and Warsaw IN. Judging is done by a panel that includes experts from law enforcement, film, and juvenile justice as well as teens attending MLB All Star FanFest.

The winning videos can be seen at www.TeenPSA.org. A link to Caleb's video can be found here: http://teenpsa.org/2017/06/06/2017-national-semi-finalist-6-every-day/

“We applaud WACC for taking part in this program and thereby encouraging their students to be part of the solution to end teen victimization,” said Douglas Sebastian, Founder of KinderVision Foundation. “Caleb’s excellent safety message will be used in schools all across the country to raise awareness and keep teen’s safe.” For more information and safety resources, visit www.KinderVision.org.


The Greatest Save Teen PSA Program is a project of the KinderVision Foundation and was developed at the request of law enforcement because of the following statistics:
  • The age group most at-risk for sexual predators is 14-17
  • 1 in 4 girls will be a victim of sexual abuse by her 18th birthday
  • 1 in 10 boys will become a victim of sexual abuse by his 18th birthday
Rollie Fingers, member of the baseball Hall of Fame and National Spokesperson for the organization, added, “We focus on prevention because we believe that when it comes to kids, The Greatest Save is the one we never have to make.”

The Greatest Save Teen PSA Program is a peer to peer crime prevention program of the KinderVision Foundation, a recognized 501c3 charity of Major League Baseball since 1992. The program is currently running in 26 Major League Baseball cities and is endorsed by law enforcement nationwide. KinderVision’s mission is to empower children and teens through education to prevent victimization, with a focus on exploitation, abduction and human trafficking.

Mrs. Hopper's Interactive Media Video Editing Class was in the halls filming today. Using exactly 16 shots, they will answer the question to "What’s inside the locker?" It can be a comedy, tragedy, etc. They have the freedom to choose their shots and feel to the film as they learn how to storyboard and properly compose shots. As a way to showcase the basics of video editing they have mastered, they will edit their projects utilizing Adobe Premiere CC.

If you know someone who is an aspiring Video Editor, be sure to tell them about Video Editing Class. After taking it, they can take other Videography and Television Classes.
