New Media Equipment - July 2013
The 2010-2011 KFHS Television and Radio Crew.
Name:Jennifer Montenegro (Class of 2008) Occupation:Producer--KWCH Eyewitness News 12 Television--Wichita, KS. My
Experience at FHSU: "My
time spent in Heather Hall prepared me for life after college. I learned
everything from time management to learning new equipment to dealing with a
client. The best part was the hands-on experience right from the start. I was
able to take my ideas and put it in projects. We were allowed to make mistakes,
learn from it, and do better next time. Without my time spent at KFHS and FHSU,
I wouldn't have been offered a job before my college experience was over."
