EAST students' film wins video competition celebrating the power of rural health in Arkansas.

Cedarville High School EAST was selected as the first place winner in the Arkansas Department of Health “Celebrating the Power of Rural Health in Arkansas Video Challenge." The video team created an informational film on School-Based Wellness Clinics in Arkansas featuring Cedarville's plans to renovate an old building on the elementary campus for a medical center. Before starting the project, the team took a trip to the Mansfield Wellness Center to gather information on the clinic being implemented on that campus. Without any formal training, they learned Final Cut video editing as they worked on the film. 

The renovation of the building is now complete with new walls, windows, exterior paint and medical equipment. Contracts with a doctor, an optometrist and a dentist are now in place and the clinic will be open at the end of January. 

Team members are Katie Goines, Justin Martin, Bailie Murphy, and Zach Jordan. Maddy Armer, EAST student, designed the clinic sign. The video has been featured during an event in Little Rock and has been posted on the Arkansas Department of Health website.  Each member of the video team received certificates, and the EAST Program received a $250 Wal Mart gift card to purchase media equipment and/or supplies for the classroom. 

The video team would like to express their appreciation to the Arkansas Department of Health for giving them the opportunity to participate in the competition.
