Doug Rhodes, Customer Service Manager for Entergy, recently stopped by the Satellite Center to deliver a $500 sponsorship check for the centerís Video and Animation Festival. The funds will be used to purchase supplies and help cover some of the expenses for the event.
The festival was founded six years ago by Satellite Center facilitators Brian Gough, Albert Dupont and Rhitt Growl as a project for their team members. It has since grown into a regional animation and film event for high school students and community members in the River Parishes, Greater New Orleans Area and Northshore. The 2012 Festival will be held on April 20 at the Professional Learning Center in Luling.
