A professional music and video producer, voice-over artist and entertainer, Couleen (Al) LaGon founded the academy, after teaching a course that he developed to over 80 third graders at Clairemont Elementary. It was entitled “How To Make A PSA”, and included a slide-show, lecture, Q&A session and presentation of professional video equipment. The course was sparked by a video and song that Al produced for his son, Christian.
"Mr. LaGon served CL as an expert to our third graders as they prepared and filmed their Habits of Scholarship PSAs. He took this role seriously and put a good deal of time and attention towards creating a lesson that was accessible to the students. Any time we can get experts from the field to work with our students, we are creating some of the richest opportunities we can for them. Mr. LaGon was a great asset in helping us support the students in creating a well crafted final product. ”
