LIBERTY, Mo. -- A group of high school broadcasting students in Liberty won a national award for their daily news program. This is the second time in ten years Liberty has won this award.
The Pacemaker award is the equivalent to the most prestigious award for broadcasting professionals. Tom Kackley/Student, Executive Producer says, "I think it just says we have a bunch of hard working students here at Liberty High School."
The high school newscast reaches way beyond the classroom and into homes in Liberty on Public Access Channel 18.
"Our community gets to see us all the time and we get a lot of positive feedback from the community and I think to me that's really what counts," said Ann Bertoldie, broadcast instructor.
Bertoldie arrived ten years ago. She makes sure the students learn not every broadcast can be award-winning. Liberty is one of only three high school programs recognized from across the country.
