Sevastopol High adding video to journalism program

Sevastopol High School’s journalism teacher is looking to improve the program’s video equipment. Mindi Vanderhoof, who is also the school’s yearbook adviser, wants to upgrade some of the tools the class currently uses to increase the quality of Pioneer News, an online video broadcast recorded during lunchtime. Currently, the broadcast is recorded using green sheets and a DSLR camera. Vanderhoof said the yearbook staff sells advertisements in their yearly publication to offset costs and perhaps earn a profit to be put toward the new equipment.



Despite Sevastopol not raising the price of its yearbooks, the cost of producing a hard-copy edition remains high. Vanderhoof is a fourth-year teacher at Sevastopol and said most of the program’s success can be attributed to her predecessor Linda Thompson, who was an adviser for 30 years.
