The Pulse radio recognized by County Council

By Stan Welch
Students at the Career Center for District 1 & 2 were recognized by the Anderson County Council Tuesday, with a resolution recognizing their achievements in operating a radio station, WPPB, The Pulse.
Founded by students in 2012, the station has been honored frequently, but its recent achievements are certainly worthy of recognition. After competing at the state level, the team and staff moved through the Southeast regionals and competed in the 79th Annual Intercollegiate Broadcast System Student Media Conference in New York City from March 1-3.
They dominated the competition for Best High School Radio Station, reaching the finals in nineteen categories, and winning twelve of them. They also, for the second year in a row, won first place overall for the best High School Station.
Students from Wren, Piedmont, Powdersville, and BHP high schools are involved in the operation of the station.
The resolution recognized their extraordinary achievements, and for being outstanding ambassadors for their community.
