In The Studio: We produced a video for The Parent Help Center. Two motivational speakers were filmed in the studio today. The final video will be shown at local high schools. More information about this event is available from the Times Union article. One of the speakers, Erik Weihenmayer climbed Mount Everest despite losing his sight when he was 13.
