On May 23, 2013, we visited the campus of Booker High in Sarasota for the unveiling of the new John H. Lamensdorf Digital Motion and Design studio in the Visual and Performing Arts Department. So many gorgeous new computers to support the students with the very latest in the software so critical to young (and I suppose not so young!) filmmakers today. The unveiling received great local press and many inquiries about the trust’s efforts. The Booker VPA students are, to a student, warm, engaging, appreciative, humble and TALENTED.
We were serenaded by the Guitar students – playing their new air guitars compliments of the trust – with a fabulous visual production accompanying them. Tears were flowing.
We look forward to making our third contribution in 2014 which will focus on awarding scholarship opportunities to the students.
