The Demopolis Middle School Tiger TV Broadcast students received a major boost Tuesday when Robertson Banking Company contributed $1,000 to the program.

“DMS began its broadcasting program in the spring of 2013 with just a few pieces of equipment and a lot of determination” program sponsor Meggin Mayben said. “Today DMS Tiger TV is on its way to producing professional quality broadcasts.”

The broadcast team streams the announcements live each morning at 7:52.

“Anyone can watch on the Demopolis City Schools website at www.dcsedu.com under then Demopolis Middle School tab,” Mayben indicated. “The broadcast students are now branching out and trying their hand at commercials and advertising to raise funds for more needed equipment and set pieces.”

The Robertson check represented the first sponsorship funds secured by the program. DMS Tiger TV will display the company logo and produce a 1-2 minute commercial on the broadcasts.

Joseph Barnes says his favorite thing about the class is he “gets to learn about different technologies.” Larson Jackson says she likes “being able to inform our student body about upcoming events at our school and in our community.”
