When Heritage Academy began a live broadcast of the morning announcements last year, students had the opportunity not only to learn communication skills, but to develop leadership abilities. The TV lab was the idea of D. Hunter Powell, Heritage principal, and was assembled under the direction of Pastor Allen Robinson, the IT coordinator at Heritage. In the beginning of the program, students already involved in the school's print journalism class were selected to help in the lab. Audra Haddock-Martenot, a digital photography instructor at Hagerstown Community College who has children at Heritage Academy, offered suggestions during the early stages of the program, which is under the direction of journalism teacher Tammy Brewer.
