“And the award goes to…”

My wife Anne and I have been honored with an award for outstanding video production!

The Sacred Heart Academy 2014 video produced by Pointe Productions (our company) was honored with a Bronze Award in the “Recruitment Videos – Short Videos” category by CASE, The Council for Advancement and Support of Education.

It was selected from more than 60 entries worldwide.


From the CASE Web site:

Missed it by that much!

So it doesn’t have the same ring as “we’re #1!” But I can’t lie, I wanted to be #1!

It was the Toastmasters District 11 International Speech Contest Finals in Indianapolis on April 25. There were seven great contestants.

Congratulations to champ Gil Michelini (who now goes on to the World Championship of Public Speaking in Las Vegas this August!) and 2nd place winner Valerie Rice. It was a fantastic high-spirited contest. Kudos to District 11 organizers for the terrific venue at the Clarion Waterfront. The audience was so close and very responsive. Loved that little theater setting!
