Garden Valley Technologies is excited to have the opportunity to work closely with several local schools to provide live broadcasts of student-run productions, including our most recent partnership with the Lincoln High School in Thief River Falls. This community effort has proved especially critical during this time of limited in-person attendance at sporting and other special events.

“The GVT Local Channels have played an important role in keeping our communities connected,” explains Timothy Brinkman, CEO/General Manager of GVT. “And during this unique time of limited attendance at sporting events, church services and more, it has proved more valuable than ever before.”

Beginning in December we will start airing school and local community content on the TRF – Channel 37, which will feature a wide array of content. GVT’s Video Production Coordinator, John Andringa, and District Representative, Jim Hahn, are currently training staff and students on the cameras and broadcasting equipment that GVT provided to the school for their Media and Video Production class. This class will be taught quarterly and co-taught by Stacey Leake and Mike Biermaier. Sporting events at the Brickhouse, Multi-Events Complex (MEC), and the Ralph Engelstad Arena will be broadcast and, in the future, they hope to air fine arts, homecoming coronation, pep fests and more. In addition, TRF City Council meetings and other special events will be aired.

The students and staff at these schools have dedicated countless hours to learning and running the equipment to provide parents, grandparents, friends and family the opportunity to cheer on their favorite student(s) from home.
