Bill Welch Documentary to Air Tonight on WPSU

Bill_Welch_playing_on_lion_sculptureWhat: An extended version of a documentary titled These Things are Important to Remember will air tonight on WPSU. The documentary celebrates the life of the late Bill Welch, who had been Mayor of State College since 1994.

The title is based on one of Welch’s favorite phrases from Virgil’s Aeneid. A Renaissance man, indeed.

Dorn Hetzel who served as the producer and director of the documentary, says it was truly a group effort by several film faculty and students, most especially Marty Camden who collaborated on it from the beginning as editor and assoc. producer, and Rod Bingaman and Mike Craven who were the videographers.  Composer, and Music faculty member, Arthur Goldstein wrote the original score especially for the film, incorporating strands of old Welsh songs close to the mayor’s heart.

For more information about Bill Welch, visit the CDT’s obituary or the Collegian article published shortly after he passed away.

When: 10:00 pm tonight. The show will also air Monday October 12 at 8:00 pm.

Where: WPSU (Channel 3 in most places nearby Penn State.)

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
