What do want to be?

What to do with your life? The eternal question at least for high schoolers as the end of year comes closer. What’s it like for college students? Sam Bear shows us what it’s like for him at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco California. He is up by nine o’clock each day and lives in a former hotel turned dormitory owned by the university. Then he’s off to class where he studies in the School of Motion Pictures and Television. His student ID allows him access to the school shuttle service which takes him to one of his two classes. The first class of the day is Production Design which gives him background in behind the scenes action of film work. Then it’s Directing Actors Class where he gets to work with other students. After school activities for Sam Bear include time at one of the Campus Cafes where he can connect with friends, classmates or eat.

The Academy of Art University has been providing aspiring students with varying degrees of opportunity since 1929 when Richard S. Stephens founded the school which is still run by the same family with his granddaughter Dr. Elisa Stephens serving as current president. The school grants associate, bachelors and master’s degrees as well as teaching credential, certificate programs and continuing art education on campus or on line. The university keeps itself current by engaging staff who work in their field of teaching which gives students like Sam Bear real world experience.

With a student enrollment of some 14,000 the Academy of Art University is the largest of its kind in the country. The school practices an open enrollment policy and offers a variety of financing options. Students learn from established professionals in state-of-the-art facilities spread across the city.

Kisling, Nestico & Redick Ask For Ways to Stop Texting and Driving

There are times when a personal injury can result in tragedy. It’s worse still when that injury is something completely avoidable. Texting while driving has become such a common practice that many don’t see the obvious dangers of being distracted while behind the wheel until it’s too late. Personal injury law firm Kisling, Nestico & Redick have taken notice, and are looking to promote a solution.

Elianna Norin, an 18-year-old from Hudson, Ohio, was the recipient of a $5,000 scholarship extended by the law firm for her proposal to discourage texting while driving among young people. Elianna was selected from more than 400 entrants to the competition for attention of public service detailed in her proposal.

Joshua Angelotta, a Senior Partner at Kisling, Nestico & Redick, and coincidentally also from Hudson, handed over the scholarship check to Elianna at school. She stated her plans to place the funds towards her college education, helping to cover part of her tuition when she goes to the Savannah College of Art and Design this coming fall to study graphic design and animation.

Kisling, Nestico & Redick is interested in hearing from more young people on how to best address texting while driving. High school students who plan on seeking higher education in 2020 can begin submitting their proposals to Stop Distracted Driving Scholarship all the way until March 31, 2020.About Kisling, Nestico & Redick:
