Talbot Partnership, a Talbot County nonprofit dedicated to educating the community about substance abuse prevention, recently partnered with Easton High School’s award-winning Interactive Media classes to create a new organizational website. According to Dave Stofa, Director of Athletics/Transportation and Security Manager for Talbot County Public Schools, following Talbot Partnership’s recent rebranding and change in marketing focus, the organization approached instructor Garnette Hines about having her Easton High School students create and maintain a new website for Talbot Partnership.
Cameron Miller of Cordova, a senior in Hines Advanced Interactive Media class, agreed to take on the project. Miller, plans to attend UMBC in the fall of 2017 where he will be studying game or Web design, marrying his interest in computer science and graphic design. He comments, “I have especially enjoyed working on this project as it is a really cool message to be promoting – alcohol and drug prevention. It’s great to help a local organization with a mission to help with this issue in our community.”
Hines, whose students have been interning with local businesses in the community, adds, “This is giving our students real world experience, which is vital to being successful outside of the classroom. It is also a way for us to connect with the community who supports the school – strengthening the school/business partnership.”
With Miller leaving for college in the fall, Hines is grooming another Easton High School student to take over to provide continuity in updating and editing Talbot Partnership’s website.
