SOPTV HONORS EXCEPTIONAL SOUTHERN OREGON STUDENTS
SOPTV has produced a series of local short segments that showcase exceptionally gifted students from our viewing area. The segments are not intended to be a ‘talent’ show, but demonstrate the efforts of the local teachers to enhance the talents of their students. Ralph Bowman, a retired Drama and Video Production Teacher, has joined SOPTV to produce, direct, and edit the segments for regularly scheduled broadcast.
Peter Sage, a long-time supporter and previous board member of SOPTV, provided initial funding for the series. SOPTV appreciates the continous support of the John Wm. and Betty Long Unruh Fund at the Oregon Community Foundation for their support of Student Showcase. It is hoped that funding is found to feature students from all the counties that SOPTV serves — Jackson, Josephine, Douglas, Klamath, and Curry counties.
