The East Valley Institute of Technology’s radio and multimedia
programs are hosting free summer school in June and July at Gilbert’s
San Tan Village.
Sponsored by Ford's www.drivingskillsforlife.com , the summer school
will give students the opportunity to earn 1/2 elective high school
credit while learning about radio, audio production, web design, graphic
design, photography, video, marketing and more. Students will also
create public service announcements about teen driver safety that will
be played on EVIT’s radio station, The Pulse at 90.7 FM and 92.7 FM.
The classes will be held in a storefront EVIT is leasing for the
months of June and July at the outdoor Gilbert mall. The EVIT
storefront, located next to Johnny Rockets and near Harkins Theatres,
will also be a place where the public can stop by to learn more about
EVIT programs and campuses. Store hours will be 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.
The classes will be offered in two sessions:
• Session 1 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 5-6, 9-12, 16-19 and 23-26.
• Session 2 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 1-2, 7-10, 14-17 and 21-24.
The classes are open to all students, from incoming ninth-graders in
2014-15 to graduating seniors from the Class of 2014. High school credit
is only available to East Valley students.
