Students got to see, for the first time Friday, their new Channel 11 studio set, donated to them by News Channel 5 in Cleveland
Hoover High's video production students finally got a chance to see their new TV set when it was unveiled during an open house Friday. The set, donated to them by News Channel 5 in Cleveland, costs hundreds of thousands of dollars, said Tom Wilson, the school's video production teacher, who also assembled the set himself. The monitors were a donation from Best Buy, which agreed to be Channel 11's corporate sponsor for the next two years. North Canton Patch talked to Wilson in 2012 about the gift from News Channel 5 and what it means to Hoover High School. You can find that story here. And now, with the set assembled inside Hoover High, there's no denying just how professional — and cool — it is. "It makes me want to go back to school," …

North Canton City School District's TV11 is now putting together the video, which includes dozens of photos of your favorite veterans
TV production students at Hoover High are hard at work putting together a Veterans Day video that will air on TV11 — a video that will showcase dozens of veterans and active military personnel from the North Canton area. Students wrote letters to veterans — some past, some present, and some veterans the students knew, and some they didn't. And about five of those letters will be read as a part of the 10-12 minute Veterans Day video. "All the ones we've selected tend to have a personal story to it, which is really neat," video productions instructor Tom Wilson said. The reading of those letters will play over top of the photos sent in by community members. Wilson said the school received a great number of photos. In fact, they kept pouring …

Teachers and students are now putting the set together to use for North Canton City Schools' Channel 11
The TV production students at Hoover High will be working with some pretty professional equipment soon. How professional? Well, the school did receive a donation of an entire studio news set from the news professionals at News Channel 5 in Cleveland. "It was really like their entire set," said Tom Wilson, the school's video production teacher. "And that set wrapped around their entire studio. I mean, it was just huge." Hoover High students already produce some pretty top-notch work for the district's Channel 11; just look at their series of student Emmy wins (seven in the past eight years through the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) and two actual Emmy nominations outside the student category. Wilson, never having heard an…
