The 2010 winner of our “My PSA Contest!” was Terrell Grice of Fayetteville. We received the following update from Terrell’s high school video teacher (Patricia Barnard, of Douglas Byrd High School):
Terrell Grice has graduated and is now attending Full Sail University in Florida after receiving a generous scholarship based on his video work. He won first place in the NC SkillsUSA Contest called “TV production skills.” He also competed at the SkillsUSA National Conference in June 2011 in Kansas City, Missouri, representing all of North Carolina. He completed a full length movie, which showcased this summer at Douglas Byrd High School, and was attended by our school board members and our School Superintendent, Dr. Till.
Terrell’s prize of an Apple MacBook computer with Final Cut Pro software allowed him to achieve his dreams by extending classroom learning into the workplace. Thank you, HensonFuerst, for supporting the TV and video programs across the state of North Carolina.
We say: Thank YOU, Patricia. We love to hear that HensonFuerst’s MY PSA CONTEST! has such a profound impact on North Carolina students. While we are delighted to help nurture Terrell’s considerable talent, we also recognize that his success—and the success of all North Carolina youth—is due to the dedication and creativity of teachers like you.
Thanks for the update! We look forward to seeing what artistry comes from the students’ imaginations in 2012.
