O’Neill High School’s Broadcasting Department is about to purchase a new educational tool with the help of their community.
Eagle Eye Broadcasting is a completely student run live broadcasting club that has live streamed school activities for several years.
They recently set up a online fund to raise money for the purchase of a quadcopter drone to enhance their broadcasts.
In less than a month the fund has raised nearly twice the amount of money needed for the purchase. A total of $1,455 was raised in just 18 days on their original goal of $700.
This allowed them to upgrade from the original quadcopter to a better model.
“I was amazed at the support for our drone fundraiser for Eagle Eye Broadcasting." said Instructor Michael Peterson.
"We had so many alumni, past teachers, and just fans of our broadcasts help us reach our goal of buying a drone to use for our program," Peterson said.
