English and Journalism Teacher Paul Kandell gave me and my School Board colleague Barbara Mitchell a tour of the nearly-completed Paly Media Arts Center (MAC). It is a beautiful, state-of-the-art building that will be used by multiple departments including video and digital production, journalism, photography, and others. There is a central atrium which will be in high demand as a multi-use space. There is also an electronic ticker tape outside the building which will update students with news. The MAC should be ready for student use before the end of this school year.
