The End of the Road

Williams-Brice Stadium is right beside SC ETV

After 10 long, sometimes grueling (othertimes definitely not) weeks, the time has come; the end of my ETV internship is here. Before I wrap up and put a bow on this summer, I have to recap the final week first. It's been another pretty slow week here at the office with seemingly half of Content on some kind of vacation this week. This left Aimee in charge and she took a laid-back approach, not wanting my final week to be too crazy.

As my last week at ETV closes out, I'm sad to leave the experience behind, but excited to take my new skills with me into my last semester at the University of South Carolina. This summer has taught me so much. I've learned to work in different office environments and how to tell stories differently. I also learned new editing techniques. I feel prepared to finish up school and put my degree to good work.

Student Reporters with General Charles Duke

On Friday, July 26th, three high school students eagerly walked up the steps of the South Carolina State Museum. Although it was the midst of summer, these students chose to spend their morning at South Carolina ETV’s final Chasing the Moon event. That is because as they made their way to the third floor of the museum and turned the corner of the Science Exhibit, they knew they were walking into the opportunity of a lifetime.

ETV let students interview astronaut Charles Duke

I may have only been at work for four days this week, but it was a full week that seemed to rush by! After my relaxing day at home while everyone else had to suffer through a Monday in the office (#sorrynotsorry), I finally saw my supervisor Aimee again. It seemed like it had been a month since we had both been in the office at the same time, but I think it was only a little more than a week. She gave me another video to edit: a story on astronaut Don Thomas, who visited the Charleston County libraries to meet kids and tell them about space.
