The Arcadia Media Comm students, under the direction of ANN/Film Instructor Eric Luse, are running a Snap-Raise campaign through the first week of February to raise funds for students travelling to and competing in the Student National TV/Film Competition in Nashville in March, and the purchase of much needed new equipment for the ANN and Film Programs. The campaign is going strong, with the students’ goal of raising $5,000. Right now, the campaign is over halfway completed and needs YOUR HELP to reach the students’ goal. If you receive an email from a Media Comm student, please consider making a donation in any amount. And even if you don’t receive an email from a Media Comm student, please consider making a donation to the program in any amount. This project will allow the students to raise money without selling product, saving more time for study & classroom instruction.
