Schroon Lake Central School has been awarded $1,000 to launch a broadcasting club and an elective class at the school, thanks to the Community Fund for the Gore Mountain Region.
The grant comes from the Adirondack Foundation, which awarded $18,027 in grant funding to benefit a variety of North Country initiatives.
This year’s grant recipients were honored at a ceremony at Seagle Music Colony in August. The grant for the Broadcasting Club will help to buy new video editing equipment to help students live stream events and gain career-building skills in TV production and journalism.
“There is a lot going on at Schroon Lake Central School. Our small town athletes and performers have relatives and friends all over the country and the world who enjoy tuning into our live events on Facebook. This grant will allow viewers to have a high-quality experience while also introducing students to new technology,” said Stephen Gratto, superintendent in a press release.Read More
