Specs Howard President, Lisa Zahodne, comes into the Fox 2 Job Shop to tell Murray Feldman about opportunities for people looking to get into the media business.

PRESS RELEASE:

Southfield, MI
-Specs Howard School of Media Arts, a Michigan owned and operated school is making $125, 000 dollars in scholarships available to individuals seeking training in technology driven courses including Broadcast Media Arts, Graphic Design and Digital Media Arts.  The overwhelming success of last year's scholarship program has caused Specs Howard to decide to make their scholarship program a permanent part of the school.

With most Metro Detroit businesses looking to enhance and develop the technical skillset of their current employees, Specs Howard School of Media Arts wants to assist these Michigan owned and operated businesses by offering scholarships in the amount of $5,000 per award towards tuition for any Specs Howard program.  This scholarship program was created to assist individual employers and their employees and at the same time continue to develop the strength of the Michigan workforce. 

"Educating our students is of paramount importance and Specs Howard is thrilled to help our student's transition into the ever changing digital world," President Lisa Zahodne explained, "training will be in all areas including web creation and design, digital cinematography, and post production."  Today, many companies find it necessary to farm out certain areas of their business to third party vendors because their employees simply don't have the necessary knowledge.  Now, employers will have an opportunity to train their own staff so that the business can be kept 'in house'.  By employees upping their skill sets, employers will then be able to move with expediency on day-to-day business, thus creating a winning formula for all.

Employees must complete and submit an application as well as a letter of request stating why they feel they are qualified for the scholarship and how it will impact their future.  They must also submit a letter of recommendation from their Employer stating how the training will benefit the organization.  Applications are available online at www.specshoward.edu/mibusiness. Candidates will be selected based on the letters of recommendation and all candidates will need to meet the standard entrance requirements.  Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and the opportunity will end when all are awarded.

"Specs Howard interacts with Michigan employers everyday.  We see many companies struggling with budget reductions, and unfortunately employee training is one of the first cuts. We wanted to find a way to help the community we have been part of for over 44 years.  Technology is changing at such a rapid pace, employees need training to stay relevant and employers need trained employees to stay competitive. Virtually any Michigan company with a web presence could benefit from a Specs Howard trained employee. With the Specs Howard Michigan Business Scholarship, we are making video and web design training more accessible to companies located in Michigan. Anything we can do to help Michigan succeed helps all of us", said Specs Howard President, Lisa Zahodne.
