Foxboro Cable Access is pleased to award its 2014 Scholarship to John Mitchell who will be attending his second year at University of Massachusetss in Lowell majoring in Sound Recording Technology. “Since 7th grade, when I bought my first hard disk recorder, I have dreamed of working in a music studio with the best musicians and with the best equipment to make excellent music.” Speaking about his passion for the art of communication, he added “Like music and visual arts, communication relies on quick problem solving skills as well as attention to detail.” John is a 2013 graduate of Foxborough High School and worked as sound technician for the Music Dept. during his high school years. At UMASS Lowell, he served as an intern for the college radio station WUML and effectively deejayed, set up live bands and made connections in the communication industry.
FCA Executive Director Michael Webber recently presented Mitchell with a $1000 check at the FCA Studio Offices at 28 Central Street in downtown Foxboro, wished him good luck, and invited him to come back and take advantage of the equipment and facilities that are available at no charge to town residents.
As a commitment to higher education, the FCA Board of Directors has offered a $1000. Scholarship every year since 1985 to any town resident who is pursuing a degree program in the Field of Communications. Applications are distributed in the spring.
