Steve and shirt

Steven’s counselor in middle school suggested that he check out RiverzEdge. “I was really lazy and I wasn’t planning on college.”  But in the ScreenWorks studio, Steve got into the technical part, especially the digital tools. RiverzEdge got on him when his grades were falling and he brought them up. Now he’s headed to Full Sail University for art.
