Classes Produce PSA for Local Organization

May 20, 2015

Students in Lyndon State College’s Strategic Writing and Advanced Video Production class have teamed up to write and produce a Public Service Announcement (PSA) to bring awareness to equine therapy over the course of their Spring 2015 Semester. This PSA was contracted by Rhythm of the Rein, a local stable specializing in this type of therapy.

Many veterans returning from war have scars that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a major consequence of war, and often times it goes untreated. In the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont there is a special kind of therapy for these veterans that doesn’t involve a weekly visit to the therapists, Equine Therapy.

Not only did this allow students to fulfill their course requirements, it also gave them an insight into what it was like working with these veterans and therapists. In the teaming up of these two classes students learned to work together to create something that may help more than just their grades. They are creating something that may help hundreds of veterans of all ages.

Contact Rhythm of the Rein if you can help too.
