St. Petersburg College Digital Arts students Anna Marie Mazza, Clio Perkins, David Quintana and Maddie Stubbs brought their heart, creativity and work ethic. SPC provided the foundation for the four to excel and achieve a placement in their dream programs at Florida State University, the Ringling College of Art and Design and the University of Florida.
“I wasn’t born into greatness, but I was made for it. I won’t forget my roots, so stay frosty SPC,” Quintana said.
The Digital Arts program provides opportunities for students interested in digital media, video production, film making and the graphic arts. Classroom work teaches them the skills and tools they need to succeed. Students have the chance to apply what they learn in the classroom in the field in an internship with leading Tampa Bay area companies like WFLA Channel 8.
Students also get help in building their portfolio, which will have a big impact on their educational and professional future. SPC instructors who encouraged them and career advisors who helped them plan for the future made a big difference to these students. Learn more about career and internship counseling.
Mazza, Perkins, Quintana and Stubbs’ hard work won them the 2016 SEmmy awards and led to their acceptance into the highly competitive programs at FSU, Ringling College and UF. Alumni of these programs have worked at internationally known companies like Facebook and Microsoft.
