MHS Sophomores Gain Real-World Videography Experience
Milton Hershey School sophomores who are enrolled in the Electronic Media and Journalism career pathway recently had the opportunity to gain industry knowledge from professionals who work for Great Save Productions—the team that produces events at Giant Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
The Electronic Media and Journalism pathway is one of 11 career concentrations offered through Milton Hershey School’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) program. Brandon Sheaffer and Graham Jenkins, two producers from Great Save Productions, visited with students during their videography, writing, and editing class to share samples of their work and answer questions about the industry.
“They talked about some of their events, skills students should acquire, the nature of their work, and examples of their work schedules,” said Ronald Rickens, an Electronic Media and Journalism instructor at MHS. “Hearing from industry professionals is beneficial to students because it supports the instruction they receive in class.”
Through the school’s award-winning CTE program, Milton Hershey School students benefit from hands-on instruction, industry-recognized certification opportunities, and real-world experience by collaborating with local professionals.
