Government students see lessons in action

About 60 students from the LBJ Early College High School and other ACC government classes toured the complex with faculty and staff and met with state representatives Celia Israel and Gina Hinojosa, who shared their path to politics and answered questions. The setting also provided an opportunity for students to examine issues before the Legislature.

Adjunct government professors Dr. Shannon Sinegal and Carl Mullen helped organize the trip, along with Dr. Kris Seago, chair of the government department, Alicia Del Rio, manager of elections and government relations, Ray Sandoval, ECHS manager, and Maria Bahena Perez, ECHS assistant.

RTF students show support for Texas film industry

Sixteen film and media makers in the college’s Radio-Television-Film Program visited the Capitol May 4 to show support for the state’s moving image industry.

Students visited senators’ offices and stood side-by-side with professional editors, directors, producers, technicians, actors, studio heads, and film commission leaders to discuss the Texas Moving Image Industry Incentive Program.

“Students had their voices heard on an array of issues important to their field, like the very tangible economic impact of creative media industries on our state,” said Christian Raymond, RTF department chair.
