CTEP visits Universal Audio

Music Production and Recording Arts students from Scotts Valley HS got a rare look into the operations at Universal Audio in Scotts Valley during a field trip this month. Students had an in depth presentation by UA's top engineers and a tour of the recording studio where they test their products.

Universal Audio is the world's leader in Thunderbolt audio interfaces, analog recording hardware, and UAD audio plug-ins.

Students pictured here with UA Founder, Bill Putnam (Center).


Up and coming

Aptos High senior and CTEP Video Production student Amanda Fort is officially a professional in the world of sports media! Fort, the best female golfer in the county, combined her love of golf and video production to get a job with CBS Sports for their coverage of the AT&T Pro-Am Tournament held in Pebble Beach last weekend.

CBS personnel commended Amanda for her work and her professionalism. She got to do live, on-course audio, following the professionals and amateurs around the golf course for 4 straight days. Among the golfers she got to follow future Hall-of-Famer Phil Mickelson, and the #3 ranked player in the world, Jordan Spieth. Congrats Amanda!


Hildebrands donate to CTEP

Andy and Georganna Hildebrand are local residents who recently donated approximately $80,000 of equipment and lumber to the Santa Cruz County Career Technical Education Partnership programs.

This equipment and lumber will be used by hundreds of students at the following high schools: Harbor High School, San Lorenzo Valley High School, Natural Bridges Green Career Center, Soquel High School, Ponderosa High School, Sequoia High School, and Watsonville High School. Andy and Georganna were very gracious in donating fairly new woodworking equipment, vehicles, and premium lumber that he milled himself.
