When people think of school sports, most people don’t think about the tech crew that records, edits and streams those games. Senior Kyle Phillips has been a part of that crew for three years now.

“I like setting up lights and broadcasting so I thought, why not,” Phillips said.

Along with sports, Phillips also helps out with the all the events that go on in the auditorium, such as concerts, talents shows and plays.

“My favorite event has to be the lip sync,” he said. “It’s always interesting to set lights up to the music they choose.”

Students like Phillips and the Theater Tech class play an important role in a lot of the activities that the high school has to offer. Without them, there would be no video of sports, no lights in the auditorium and no music for the pep rallies.

“Taking theater tech was the best thing I have done while in high school,” Phillips said.

Several colleges are also looking for students who have skills in this field. A few examples are Butler, Friends, Newman, and WSU.

“I plan on going into the video productions program at Butler,” Phillips said. “I’ve been interested in the field for a while now.”
