Justin Lawrence, HCC Film and Video Technology student, always enjoyed watching movies but he really wanted to learn how they are made. Through the Film and Video Program, he is getting an up-close look and hands-on experience to the details of how to make films. When he finishes the program, he would like to become a film editor.
Justin is very involved on campus. He is a Student Ambassador and served as the Student Government Association’s Public Information Officer for 2010-2011. As an Ambassador, he acts as liaisons between HCC and the community. The student ambassador activities are varied and include conducting recruitment activities such as campus tours, participating in special campus events, making presentations at local high schools, speaking to community businesses, and assisting during registration. In addition, ambassadors are active in making contact with the college’s alumni.
“Being involved in SGA and as a Student Ambassador has allowed me the opportunity to represent the whole student body and become comfortable in large crowds,” Justin explains.
Justin came to HCC right after finishing Pisgah High School. He enjoys photography, hiking, and camping.
“One of the things I like most about HCC is that the teachers care. “They take time out of their day to help you.”More Student Stories
