Here is a copy of a news release of a program which airs in on PBS in South
Texas on the 18th. Three of my students, animators, are included in the
project. If you are not in our area, you may want to call your local PBS
station and express an interest in seeing it. I believe KLRN will be glad
to help your local station if they have an interest in airing it. For those
of you who are in the area, we hope you enjoy the video and animations.
Most of the studnts are high school students in the San Antonio, area.

Local students will screen and discuss their original work with host and
KMOL news anchor Randy Beamer. The pieces vary in length from 30 seconds to

done by students and teachers in our community. They are mastering a
communication medium as fluid as the future itself," says CAM Messina, FRESH
