The Future Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia has announced it’s new President, Craig Vagell, an English/Communications junior at Cabrini College.
The Future Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia is an organization that provides resources for upper-level high school and college students to explore career options in the communication field.
Vagell is a resident assistant, vice president of campus activities and programming board, student ambassador, search leader for campus ministry, assistant operations manager for 89.1 The Burn, and co-executive producer/studio manager for Cabrini’s Outspoken.
Vagell first became introduced to the organization after he attended a symposium with approximately 50 other Philadelphia area students at channel 3 last spring. The symposium allowed Vagell to make contacts in public relations, journalism, and video, view an actual television show behind the scenes, and become aware of a new position opening this year.
President Brian SaenzDeViteri, and Vice President Stephanie Tofani, graduated from Rowan University last year and were the founders of the Future Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia organization. SaenzDeViteri and Tofani appointed Vagell to the position Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2003, at a symposium located in Widner Lecture Hall entitled “Careers in Media.”
“It would be excellent to get Cabrini’s name out there for public relations, and a great opportunity for me because I would be able to meet other students from other colleges and universities,” Vagell said.
One of Vagell’s first priorities is to establish an executive board. This executive board will institute a new constitution, update the current website, advertise what the Future Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia has to offer such as another symposium scheduled for next spring at channel 6, and be given the chance to take part in many new opportunity for their future. Vagell also hopes to establish a budget and raise money for the organization through Cabrini College and it’s alumni. “With the changes I believe I can bring a lot of leadership skills that I have developed through Cabrini College.”
“This is an opportunity you can’t get any day. I will be able to show the professional staff members in the Philadelphia area that I am a hard worker and extremely interested and dedicated in the communications field,” Vagell said.
