About ten high school students with the Glenvar Coalition plan on filming two public service announcements on Monday, Feb. 2 to submit to local television and radio stations.
One PSA, written by the students, highlights the issue of teen pregnancy by leading up to a phone call – where the female teen character has to tell a male character the consequences of a bad decision.
The statement the clip will end with is a familiar one to Glenvar High students: “Make it a great life or not – the choice is yours,” is similar to what Principal Joe Hafey says every day during their morning announcements (although he says “day” instead of “life”.)
Another PSA was written by faculty sponsor Sherry Gearhart, and it is also aimed at teen pregnancy prevention.
Zach Armentrout, a student in Burton Center for Arts and Technology’s mass communication program, is producing the audio and video for the public service announcements.
