If you do anything at North Metro TV, you probably know Devry Foss. Devry is an extremely talented and driven young man who started producing programming for Channel 14 when he was in middle school, back in 2008. Now a high school student, Devry found himself faced with the opportunity to create a video as part of a math class assignment. That’s how last year Devry teamed with his Local Edition co-host Ben Raze to create “Pi Day,” a math themed parody of the Rebecca Black You Tube music video phenomenon “Friday.”
The resulting video is terrifically produced, hilarious, and even educational. It quickly became a favorite around the NMTV studios and, recently, impressed the judges of the Hometown Media Awards, earning Devry the award for Educational Class Project K-12. The win comes with a plaque, a copy of which will be on display in perpetuity at NMTV. The Hometown Media Awards are presented yearly by the Alliance for Community Media, a national organization of public access stations and producers that receives thousands of entries every year from all across the country. We here at NMTV could not be more proud of Devry for receiving this terrific honor.
Oh, by the way, Devry’s video also got an A from his math teacher.
