Interview of Pitt Magazine Senior Editor

We had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Mr. Ervin Dyer, senior editor for Pitt Magazine.  He had nominated Mr. Wallace Houston Terry for honors with the National Association for Black Journalists. Mr. Terry was the first black war correspondent on permanent duty during the Vietnam War.

We traveled to Clairton High School to shoot the latest Teen Zone TV episode, which focuses on bullying in the schools.

The last 2 weeks have been busy with quite a few basketball games.  It’s been an amazing couple of weeks for the Penn Trafford boys team, as they had 4 section wins over Connellsville, Latrobe, Norwin and Hempfield.  The Penn Trafford girls team won big over Laurel Highlands, Norwin and Latrobe.

We recently booked several weddings for 2012.  We are very excited to be a part of the Dinga, Decker and Sklarsky weddings!
