Goodbye Shawnee TV


I have been thinking about making this post for a couple weeks now, because I wanted to make sure I really said some things that I wanted to, that I wasn’t really able to put into words when I was in front of the mic for LDTV awards, or when talking to everyone at the party beforehand.

Shawnee TV was by far the greatest thing to happen to me throughout my high school career. Being President of Shawnee TV my senior year gave me a chance to be the leader I wanted to be for the program and with all the awards and recognition we’ve received this year, I can proudly turn over the leadership of Shawnee TV. I am so unbelievably proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in the past four years, and everyone deserves a huge thank you for all the time and dedication both to the Renegade Morning Show, and to all the other content that’s produced for Shawnee TV and LDTV. Like I said on the stage at Lenape, teamwork is the key to success for us, and when everyone stays involved, and everyone gets included, amazing things will happen.

To my fellow Shawnee TV seniors. I’m sure Brandon will follow me up with a similar post, but I know you guys all can agree that this program changed our lives, and really put us on the right path to a career someday. I would say the experience we received in the Communications program at this school is unparalleled, and I know we’re all going to see that in college next year.

To the underclassmen, never lose the enthusiasm. I was a little worried about who would be really dedicated to the program after I graduated, but I have no doubt now that Season 10 will be some of the best content Shawnee TV has ever produced, and I wish you guys the best of luck. Remember, stick together, and keep everyone involved. The only way we keep the show going is by encouraging incoming students to get involved. Teamwork!

And last and not least, to Mr. Pistone, I owe so much to you. You encouraged me to do things I never thought I’d be able to accomplish, and Shawnee TV would never have been as successful as it was this year without you. You treat everyone in your classes, and in all areas of production, with the professionalism that would be expected from a production team, and because of this we do great things. You’ve taught me so much in these two short years, and I owe a huge thanks to you as both a mentor, and a friend.

Thank You Everyone!
