PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles School Board will accept a $100,000 donation of television studio equipment for the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center on Thursday at 7 p.m. at Jefferson Elementary, 218 E. 12th St.
The board also will recognize Darwin Gearey, a retired Port Angeles television producer, for the donation.
The donation includes two full-size Sony broadcast cameras, a large Winstead broadcast production console, a 3,000-watt light kit, numerous studio grade microphones, monitors, large Canon zoom lenses, broadcast recorders and digital editing units, cords and accessories to connect the matching pieces, the PATV.com Internet domain name and a library of stock footage of many Olympic Peninsula locations and events.
Student-operated PATV, which stands for Peninsula Area TV and Pirate Athletics TV, is currently an webcast-only station.
Wave TV has designated Channel 21 to host PATV, as the local-access or education channel, once the school acquires a $16,000 Leightronix digital programming recorder.
The board is also expected to approve new state-mandated graduation requirements that will require the class of 2017 and later students to complete training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and in the use of emergency defibrillators.
