We're back at it with more good news from the WDFCTC Media Production crew.
We have four exhibitors this year in Where Do We Go From Here?, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit's Annual Teen Art exhibition! Angelina Smith, Ayanna Harris, Emily Edwards, and Juwand Barber all have one piece selected along with other teen artists from the surrounding area. I've attached the images of their pieces below.
The museum is having an opening exhibition this Friday, April 8th from 6-8pm for all of the exhibitors and a few of our students are confirmed for attending. Masks are required at the event, if you would like to attend as well! Additionally, the show will be on view at the museum through Friday, April 29th during their regular business hours.
MOCAD Is located at 4454 Woodward Ave, Detroit 48201 at the corner of Woodward and Garfield St. There is a small lot behind the museum for parking.
As you can imagine, it's major for any artist to be exhibited in a museum, but for them to be chosen so early in their career is wild. We're very proud over here!
Detroit Thermal Systems is one of our SME Prime Partners.
The Electronics & Robotics and HVAC students, the instructors and myself were able to tour to see the process of making the HVAC components for several Ford Vehicles. They also learned about the hiring opportunities which come with several financial incentive opportunities: tuition assistance, perfect attendance and sign on bonuses. The students were given the opportunity to answer questions about the facility for raffle tickets for the Oculus Quest 2. Samuel Oyewumi and Jonathan Turner were the winners of the two Oculus.
Hi everyone - I have more great news coming from Media Production over here at WDFCTC!
As you may remember, we had seven pieces awarded at the Gold Key level this year in the regional Scholastic Awards, which put them up for national judging in NYC.
In a lightning strike move, senior Morgan Granger won a Silver Medal for her piece Dream World 6 in the national level of the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards!!
I have attached her image below, along with a copy of the award letter to me from Scholastic for more information. This is an insane accomplishment and places Morgan in the top 1% of all students that submitted to Scholastic this year - over 100,000 students submitted more than 260,000 pieces and hers was chosen among the final 2,000.
Major players in the art world have won at this level, including Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon, and Stephen King. I know we're all so proud that Morgan is on a similar path of greatness!

Severe weather is expected in our area later this week so we want to share the process and factors the District uses when determining a weather-related school closing. The decision to close school due to inclement weather is not an easy one. We know that it is best for students to be in class, but we can’t control the weather. Our priority is the safety of our students and staff.
