PEPPERELL — Students at Nissitissit Middle School are enjoying a state-of-the-art video and media production studio thanks to the efforts of Andrew Mclean, who attained the rank of Eagle Scout in the spring for his work on the project.

A member of Boy Scout Troop 13 in Pepperell, Mclean received his Eagle rank in May and celebrated his Eagle Ceremony on June 25. He was a member of the National Honor Society during his time at North Middlesex Regional High School and his now a freshman at UMass Amherst, where is is seeking a degree in finance.

Nissitissit now has three HD cameras, microphones, powerful video editing computers, editing software, sound and lighting equipment and a green screen thanks to Mclean’s project.

The adopted name of the new media lab is “Ntv” (Nissitissit TV)

“This project was a true team effort, and could not have been completed without the help of Superintendent Joan Landers, NMS principals Mrs. Gleason, Mrs. Young (assist), Kenneth Wrobel (Librarian and Media Director) Troop 13 Pepperell, family and friends,” Troy Mclean, Andrew’s father, wrote in a release. “One recognition that I would like to highlight is the generosity, hard work, learning experiences and opportunities that Pepperell Community Media provided to Andrew and the NMRSD community. As Andrew’s sponsor, President Richard Potts made available close to $100K in sponsorship dollars as well as a great deal of His and PCM staff’s time to pull of this effort.”
