The Huisking Family Foundation has donated $10,000 to the State College of Florida Foundation toward building a Digital Production Studio in the new SCF Library & Learning Center. The $10,000 pledge qualifies for a SCF Trustee/Director match, making the donation a total of $20,000.
The Digital Production Studio is integral to students who study filmmaking and digital production at SCF and will provide students with the tools they need to succeed. The equipment will be state-of-the-art and the space will allow for individual projects and collaboration. SCF alumni include artists who have studied film and digital production at the College and have taken their talents to Hollywood, including screenwriter Mike Le and cinematographer Ryan Bodie.
The Huisking Family Foundation primarily supports arts and culture, education, the environment, animal protection, hospitals, health and human services and religious purposes. The foundation was established to perpetuate and preserve the memory of the late Lieut. Frank R. Huisking, who served as co-captain of a B-24 bomber during World War II and was lost, along with his crew, when the bomber went down over Italy in 1944.
