Regional Recipient

Donald Tulk

Donald Tulk, of Roncalli Central High School in Port Saunders, Newfoundland, jumped at an opportunity to make a contribution to the local community and to give his students some hands-on experience working with modern technology. A new cable television channel needed community input and Mr. Tulk's students were just the people to provide it. They set up an advertising channel that serves three local towns, taking on responsibility for everything from administration to camera operation. The project has an additional benefit for the students by giving them immediate evidence of what studies in technology have to do with the real world.
