"I have been a big proponent of the Academy for Creative Media and most importantly, it being a Systemwide program. It’s been tremendous progress to see what has unfolded here."

"The ability of the ACM to be on virtually every campus across the system, I think is very important, as we've been working to develop digital media skills on in our public school students. It's terrific that they now have a place to go regardless of where they are."
