LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston High School (LPS) TV studio will be equipped with new studio gear thanks to the proceeds of this summer’s fundraising telethon, which was held in June when TV Studio celebrated 30 years of teaching and producing high school television with a live 13-hour fundraising telethon.
Recently, Heidi Cislo, president of the Livingston Education Foundation (LEF), presented the check for $10,585 to the Board of Education.
LEF contributed the raised funds to enhance learning in the classroom. The District will buy a jib arm, a boom device designed for shooting on-location and in studios.
"The success of the Telethon was a testament to the dedication of Steve Milano and Jason Daily as teachers and mentors, the alumni who came back to support their efforts, and overwhelming response of current students, and by the response of the community,” Cislo said.
The telethon was co-produced with LEF, a nonprofit group that raises funds for Livingston schools and students. The telethon included vintage film clips, including Tony winner Nikki M. James (’99), actor Adam Pally (’00), filmmaker Rich Tanne (’03), sportscaster Bruce Beck (’74), actor Jason Alexander (’77), with segments featuring bands and celebrity guests. Tony-nominated actress and Livingston alum (’95) Leslie Kritzer (Hairspray, Legally Blonde, A Catered Affair) served as a host.
