When it came time to select a college, the Deatsville native chose UA because of the national reputation of the College of Communication and Information Science’s Digital Media Center and its Center for Public Television, which allows students to gain hands-on experience in television production. “I found it compelling that UA had an on-campus media center that focuses on all areas of digital media, such as news, radio and film,” said Scanlan. “I was particularly drawn to the Center for Public Television because it gave students so many opportunities directly on campus to help grow their portfolio and expand professionally.”

In a few weeks, 22-year-old Abbeville native Timothy Skipper’s story at The University of Alabama will come to its conclusion, as he walks across the stage to receive his Bachelor of Arts in creative media. His Capstone story didn’t start on “First Day UA” his freshman year, but in a childhood fraught with trials that would prevent many people from even dreaming of attending college, let alone graduating.
“Over this semester, in the process of putting my film together, I learned that dreams don’t work unless you do. Tell yourself that every day.”
