Journalism students at West Liberty University will benefit from a $75,000 donation from Bordas & Bordas law firm to purchase new equipment.
Bordas & Bordas provided the funds for the purchase of two high definition video cameras for use in the University's broadcast journalism program. In addition, Jamie Bordas, managing partner of the firm, will provide a weekly 30-minute talk show "Bordas & Bordas Legal Review" which will focus on timely legal issues.
Jason Koegler, WLU Vice President of Institutional Advancement said that the gift will enhance student learning.
"We are grateful to Jamie Bordas and appreciate his willingness to support higher education at West Liberty University," Koegler said. "This money will greatly enhance our journalism and communications department and give our students an edge as they prepare for their professional careers."
Bordas said the firm is pleased to offer the ability for West Liberty students to sharpen their broadcasting skills.
"We are excited to partner with West Liberty University and to help students develop their skills in broadcasting," Bordas said. "Bordas & Bordas knows the value of college and the expense involved in providing students with up to date programs and technology."
