Mariemont High School Digital Video Production teacher Larry Goetz was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2012 Blue Chip Cable Access Awards at The Redmoor on May 9.
Lifetime Achievement Awards are not awarded each year – only when there is an exceptional honoree. Since Goetz started his Video Production class at Mariemont High School in 2001, projects from the program have earned over forty Blue Chip Awards. Goetz was honored with a tribute video played at the awards ceremony showcasing him working with his students over the years.
A few of Goetz’ students also took home a 2012 Blue Chip award. MHS seniors Michael Weston and Bryan Routt won for “Egg Drop Physics” in the Instructional/Educational – Youth category. Senior Luke Porst also earned a Blue Chip in the Documentary- Youth category for “Kick Drum Hearts”.
The Blue Chip Cable Access Awards is a cooperative venture among area cable access organizations to recognize the achievements of local access producers. Awards were determined based on four criteria: content, creativity, production quality and reaction.
