Client Overview

Valencia College President, Dr. Sandy Shugurt, was selected as the 2012 recipient of the Early Learning Coalition’s “Champion for Children” award for his work developing groundbreaking educational initiatives for pre-school children. The award was presented to Dr. Shugurt at the annual First Five Years Gala, a critical fundraiser to support the development of quality early care and education for children during the crucial first five years of their lives.


The entire video was shot on location at Valencia College.


The Talking Head Studio team worked with Valencia College to highlight Dr. Shugurt’s leadership in pre-school educational development. The hope was the presentation would be a heartfelt one-on-one shown as part of the awards ceremony to potential donors, community leaders, and educators who attended the event.
