[slideshow_deploy id=’1379′]During DTV’s formative years there were a couple things you could count on. One was total chaos behind the scenes, and the other was a dedicated group of students to help put out the fires and make incredible student television! Today we recognize a special group of students who dedicated themselves to growing this station and putting their heart and soul into everything they produced in DTV.
Five members of the Baker and the Hall families sat at the head of the DTV class from 2001-2011. Brett Baker, Nick Baker, Zach Hall, Ethan Hall, & Hannah Hall served as true leaders of the DTV class that went above and beyond the call of duty to help push the boundaries of student television, and set the tone for generations of students to come.
On any given day you could find Brett pushing buttons to make our way outdated Globecaster work, Zach Hall hustling to grab a camera to capture a breaking news fire, Ethan pounding away in the corner of the studio, working on editors that are way too slow, Nick laying the ground work and organizing everything from class rules to our Chyron System, and Hannah leading the way on DTV’s first two documentaries.
This is just the a small taste of what these students accomplished here. They were all true difference makers that helped us become what we are now! So today we dedicate our control room to the hard work and dedication of these students. From now on the control room in the DTV room will be known at the Baker/Hall Control room.
Thank you to these students and their supportive parents for the countless hours, and heart they put into our program. Without students like you DTV would be just another class, but you have truly made a difference by raising the bar for every DTV student that followed you!
