SRHS TV Students Shine

The following Seminole Ridge High School students earned honors at the Student Television Network’s National Convention in Seattle recently: Rachel Abiusi, Oliver Brown, Alexa Greico, John Heine, Vinny Lavigna, Taylor Loizzo, James Maxson, Cassi Narcus, Ashley Pellicone and Andrea Schiola.

These students earned an honorable mention in the STN Crazy 8’s Documentary Challenge. They had eight hours to produce a documentary based on the prompt “In Their Element.” They chose to spotlight the city’s homeless problem, which is composed of nearly 13,000 people living on the streets in the elements. Their story features one particular homeless man who aspired to be a teacher, but fate had different plans.
