Instructor Nancy Stillwell returned from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association summer conference with some great news for students.
The Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Foundation voted to allow MMI students to be able to apply for its annual scholarships. The foundation offers two $2,000 scholarships and two $1,000 scholarships to assist students enrolled in broadcasting-related educational programs. Previously, MMI students had been ineligible to apply due to the school’s for-profit status.
Nancy has been a member of the foundation board since 2010 and has been encouraging members to revisit the decision. Looks like her gentle encouragement has paid off. Students will get a chance to apply for the scholarships in the fall.
In related news, the WBA summer convention always includes a golf outing. Drew Wilson won $50 the long putt contest and Nancy Stillwell won $25 for having the highest score.
AND MORE GOOD NEWS!!
Recent REC graduate, Roxanne Zepeda, is now a stagehand at First Avenue working in the Main room! Roxanne has 12 shows lined up in July to work with a lot more to come. The opportunity came up through MMI’s live sound teacher, Greg Huber, who has worked as the Front of House Mixer for 33 years at First Avenue.
We make things happen EVERY DAY!!
