PC coaches attend Youth Media Summit @ MHC

Loeb Rosario and Dawayne Henry, accompanied by PC Media Director Will Bangs, and Program Director Andy Wood, yesterday attended the first Youth Media Summit for the Pioneer Valley, held at Mount Holyoke College.

Loeb and Dawayne, who represent the first cohort of coaches to be trained in media production by Will, joined other youth program participants and workers as they collectively shared ideas and concepts to help further the media components of their respective programs. Throughout the day, both coaches participated tremendously in group discussions and workshop activities, and networked with adults in a manner in which both the Media and Program Directors were extremely proud.

The highlight of the day - other than a great lunch and post-conference Friendly's stop that Loeb and Dawayne clearly enjoyed - saw both coaches present and discuss two of their video productions to the audience, before fielding a number of questions from delegates who were visibly impressed by what they saw.

All four PC attendees thoroughly enjoyed the day, and look forward to attending future summits over the course of the semester.
