  • Educator Highlight: The 2013 Station of the Year Goes to the Rams of Rockford
    posted on April 23rd, 2014

    By: Jason Springer, TV Studio Technician/RCTV Station Manager, Rockford High School

    All the preparation, time after school, giving up Saturdays, and leaving other classes all pays off for the Beyond the Rock class. Beyond the Rock has won the Station of the Year Award 6 times in the last 11 years, missing this years title by only 3 points.

    Rockford High School has a large broadcasting program that has a sizable waiting list to even get in to the beginning level class. The program is taught by teacher Kris DeYoung and technician Jason Springer.

    Our students use the Student Broadcast Awards from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters Foundation to gauge their work against other students in similar programs. They start preparing soon after we get back from the Great Lakes Broadcasting Conference, and end the morning of the deadline.
