HIGLEY HIGH STUDENTS, GILBERT CHAMBER TEAM UP FOR WORKFORCE READINESS VIDEO
Video Production Students Take Behind-The-Scenes Look at Veterinary Sciences
GILBERT -- The Gilbert Chamber teamed up with Higley High School for a student-produced video to provide an inside look at veterinary sciences as part of the workforce readiness efforts lead by the Chamber's Partners In Progress initiative.
In January 2014, the Gilbert Chamber issued a challenge to local high schools to produce a video specific to a field or industry to provide other high school students an inside look at the skills and training required for that industry.
"We are working to develop a series of videos allow high school students to really understand what is required in different fields of work," said Kathy Tilque, president and CEO. "It's an opportunity for kids to hear straight from the source what types of credentials and soft skills lend themselves to a particular field."
Higley High School video production students Montana Griffin, Asael Jimenez, and Phoenix Banuelos, under the supervision of David Nuttall, submitted a video featuring Dr. John Carr, DVM, at Warner Vista Animal Hospital in Gilbert.
"I am so proud of Montana, Asael, and Phoenix for the time and effort they put toward this project," said Nuttall. "Their commitment to the Higley Video Production Program and to their community was evident throughout the production process. All three of these young adults have a bright future and I've been thrilled to have them in my program."
The video was evaluated by video production experts on elements including content/organization, introduction, continuity/editing, camera techniques, graphics, B-roll and audio editing. Judges were extremely pleased with the work and level of professionalism demonstrated in the video submitted by Phoenix and his classmates.
"We are proud to launch our Partners in Progress video library with the stellar work done by the students at Higley High," Tilque said. "We hope to extend the challenge to include additional schools in the fall. It's a great way for students to get hands-on experience while providing a valuable resource to their peers."
