The big and bright screens in the foyer have gained a lot of attention since they were put up on Oct. 4.
The boards show many things during the school day, like entertainment stories, photos, and school announcements.
“They’ll show off events and media. Graphic design and animation projects as well as PGTV and newspaper will have pictures, videos, and audio for broadcasting on the campus,” Animation teacher Jennifer Gibson said.
The media boards may seem like they will only be used to show football games, pep rallies, the band performing and much more; but it has more of an educational purpose than you would think.
There are three students who run the boards and display the information on the media boards.
“Career Tech Education Department bought these to give our practicum and animation students run them. They will manage and operate all three boards,” Mrs. Gibson said.
There has been one media board since last year, but the Career Tech Education Department decided that the school needed an upgrade.
“We wanted each student in the class to be able to run their own board so that was the reason we decided to purchase two more. Also it just enhances the look of the foyer,” Mrs. Gibson said.
