    When the economy tanked, I was laid off as a Multimedia Specialist in advertising. Fortunately, a school hired me to teach at risk youth in a Career and Technical Education program. I teach Journalism, Digital Art (photography and graphic design), and Digital Video Production.

    This year our Computer department received a Microsoft grant and purchased new computers. I have five Desktop machines and 8 laptops.

    However, my students are forced to use a hodgepodge of Adobe software.

    I’m hoping the Cow offers an education grant. My school, ( could really use 5 licenses, for Adobe Master Collection.

    I know the Cow already gives back so much, but an opportunity for a grant will help my students in many ways. Many of them only come to school so they can edit.

    Our charity outreach is done under the auspices of the Creative COW Foundation and we have one ongoing program we sponsor, the Directing Workshop for Women at the American Film Institute, and this year we also underwrote the young filmmakers workshop scholarship program for the San Luis Obispo Film Festival.

    Between them, we are tapped out for the year, so we will have to respectfully decline. We wish we had the money to supply 5 seats of Master Collection but that is simply not in the budget.

    Best regards,

    Creativity is a process wherein the student and the teacher are located in the same individual.
