WPMQ-Radio

Greater Clark’s broadcasting program, which is also offered at New Washington Middle/High School, provides opportunities to learn more about careers in that field as well as develop technical skills. However, students learn so much more.

“It helps me with my public speaking,” student Dylan Lewis said. “It’s easier for me to talk with others. It helps me with my confidence.”

Check out this video to learn more about the program. For more information, contact Clay Ables, radio/TV instructor.

National Honor Society/National Junior Honor Society
