FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Tierra Lomabalaquihoya, a media student at Hopi High School, learned video editing and other media techniques while attending the Andy Harvey Broadcast Camp this summer at Northern Arizona University.

Lomabalaquihoya said the NAU Broadcast Camp was awesome because it taught her new video techniques and opened her mind to new ideas. She was among about 20 high school students from throughout the state.

“We learned about different types of microphones and lighting,” she said.

Toni DeAztlan-Smith, producer and lead teacher for the broadcast camp, said she was impressed with Lomabalaquihoya’s talent and attitude, especially during the live-to-tape newscast that the group produced.

“In addition to running the teleprompter during the show, she shot and co-produced a story on overcrowding at the Flagstaff Humane Center, which was broadcast on the regular NAZ TV Today newscast, which airs across Northern Arizona on Suddenlink Channel 4. She did an amazing job and I hope to see her again next year,” she said.
