16 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 20 - August 26, 1993 School & Education Cape student returns from trip to Los Angeles for UCLA media workshop Briefly By Leesa Klepner Lights, camera, action! For Jennifer Richter, this describes her week at UCLA in Los Angeles on a student educa- tional program called The Media Workshops. Jennifer, a senior at Cape Hen- lopen High School, had a terrific time from August 1-7, living with 85 other young people from across the country on the 410-acre UCLA campus. They had a busy sched- ule and spent the week attending speeches focused on broadcasting and going on behind-the-scene tours of motion picture studios, TV networks and a newspaper office. "We went from morning to night," said Jennifer. A sample day included a tour of the USC Cinema School and TV Production Facilities followed by a question and answer session with the assistant director, a meet- ing with a comedian and the host of the TV show "Studs," and a speech by a professor concerning the role of a college education in pursuing a media career. The students also spent one full day at the Warner Bros. Studio, which, according to Jennifer, was "real neat." At the studio, they went on a walking tour of houses and sets where various movies had been filmed, and the students spoke with the vice president of commu- nications and the executive pro- ducer of several TV shows. The opportunity to board a boat on which Warren Beaty was in the midst of filming his new movie, "A Love Affair," was a surprising end to an exciting day. The students saw two live tap- ings at Universal Studios, "Coach," and a new show called "Family Album," and one live tap- ing at Warner Bros. of "Family Matters." "They were an experience. It was neat to see them mess up and then do cut-ins, not the whole scene again," said Jennifer. Excursions to famous sites such as Mann's Chinese Theatre, Hol- lywood Boulevard and the Santa Monica Pier rounded out the week program. "I liked L.A. a lot, except for the pollution," said Jennifer. Jennifer says she fell in love with Los Angeles when she was there in sixth grade, and she would love to go to college at UCLA and further pursue her interest in the media. The week of activities taught Jennifer a lot about the broadcast- ing industry and what she could do to fulfill her dream of being on television. "I have to read, write and major, not in broadcasting, but in English literature," Jennifer said. Her current plans are to major in English, hopefully at UCLA, and then proceed to graduate school in broadcasting. "I know it's going to be much harder to get into the business," Jennifer said, but she's still inter- ested and determined to be a star. From the moment she viewed Joan London on the Morning Show, Jennifer knew that she wanted to be on TV. When she was younger, Jennifer wanted to be an actress, but now her tastes t.,Hnm KI photo Jennifer Richter recently returned from a media work- shop at UCLA. have altered. Her perfect vision of herself in twenty years is "as Paula Zahn, a host of CBS This Morn- ing." "I'll do whatever I have to do to work my way up," asserts the ded- icated woman. Jennifer said she took a journal- ism class in high school, but her week at The Media Workshops taught her about film and a lot about acting. A visit to the Los Angeles Times was part of the week's activities, but most of the focus was on the camera. Jennifer had a fantastic, film- filled week under the direction of Fred Berger and three other coun- selors, all involved in the commu- nications industry. The Media Workshops Program has been in existence for nine years, and the price of $695 includes the daily activities, breakfast and dinner. Lunch and plane fair add to the total cost, bringing the week of learning expenses to nearly $1500. To Jennifer, it was worth every minute. "It was great! I'm really glad I went," she said.

SDALL Civil War course proves popular One of the most popular courses at the Southern Delaware Academy of Lifelong Learning is the American Civil War course, taught for sev- eral semesters by Colonel Harold Stirling of Millsboro. Colonel Stirling holds a bachelor's degree in International Relations from the U.S. Naval Academy, and has studied the Civil War at the graduate level at East Tennessee State. Originally from Virginia, he grew up with a knowledge of, and an interest in, Civil War events. Stirling begins the course with the Constitutional Convention and an examination of the conflicts of the times. He uses videos and slides, as well as lectures and the books of Civil War historian Douglas Freeman to generate class discussions on the facts and theories surrounding the War. According to Stirring, the class is appropriate both for individuals who have studied the Civil War previously, and for those who are just begin- ning.
