LEWISTON — Lewiston Regional Technical Center students have created a commercial for Lewiston Adult Education featuring hands-on classes.

Seniors in Sylvie St. Amand’s multimedia class shot footage, mixed and edited the 30-second commercial. They visited welding, rug braiding and construction students during free time after school.

“It is a pleasure for me when my students use their skills and talents for ‘real’ projects. It feels great to be able to give back to our school and community,” St. Amand said.

The seniors are Habbon Abdillahi of Lewiston High School, Kaelyn Jipson of Oak Hill High School, Lindsay Morin of Lewiston High School and Nelson “Nik” Peterson of Oak Hill High School. They are in the LRTC multimedia program in addition to taking classes at their high schools.

The seniors also helped when it came to showing how to post the video to YouTube, said Mike Reagan, education and marketing coordinator for Lewiston Adult Education.

“I couldn’t have done it without Habbon, Kaelyn, Lindsay and Nik. They are among the best students LRTC has to offer,” he said. “I only wish they could be around when I have my next computer problem at work.”

Great Falls Television in Auburn has begun broadcasting the commercial. It also has been posted on Lewiston Adult Education’s YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyp1-XFHJTKhl7edLusbThw.
