On June 2, select students from Mission Achievement & Success Charter School received the New Mexico Broadcasters Association award in the category of Student Commercial or Public Service Announcement (PSA). Their PSA was in support of summer donations, as well as support for the annual food drive for Roadrunner Food Bank. Working together with the staff and engineers at Cumulus Media, the student took an afternoon to record the PSA as well as select the background musical track. The students were also pleased to meet local radio personalities and learn more about careers in radio.
The students earning this honor are Ian Fleck, 11th grade, Ryan Wagner, 10th grade, Javianna McBride, 9th grade, Taylor Sanchez, 8th grade and Lauren Garza, 7th grade. The PSA was written and produced by Melissa Galetti, NM History and Health teacher.
The relationship with MAS and Roadrunner Food Bank goes back to the inaugural year of MAS Charter School in 2012. Since that time, MAS has collected 56,579 pounds of food for Roadrunner Food Bank.
