ISF Awards $5,200 Grant to Irving High AV Program
Students in the arts audio video technology and broadcasting program at Irving ISD have access to a few more “cool tools” thanks to a $5,200 grant from the Irving Schools Foundation. On Tuesday, the ISF presented the grant to Lisa Lobb, arts audio video technology instructor at Irving High. Mrs. Lobb requested funding from the Irving Schools Foundation to purchase a complete video setup that could be checked out to students for special projects and to prepare for contest entries outside the hours of the school day. “Students learn more in-depth, valuable, technical skills when provided with the right tools/resources, and fewer time constraints,” she says. In particular, Mrs. Lobb wanted to have this equipment available for a very talented student at Irving High School named Jonathan Florencio, who is working on a video for a contest where he could receive national exposure as well as a lucrative prize if he is one of the top entries.
Mrs. Lobb wants to ensure that her students have the opportunity and the equipment that they need to compete on a national level.
