NEO’s President’s Partners sponsor internship for Charlie McQuigg

Officials at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) recently announced Charlie McQuigg as an intern, assisting in the resurgence of the school's digital communication program. McQuigg is a Miami, Okla. native and is a sophomore at NEO.

His internship is sponsored and funded by the President's Partners. The President's Partners campaign was established by the NEO Development Foundation in the fall of 2009 to implement various campus projects. The Partners have provided monetary support for the creation of the Tribal Flag Plaza, which graces the entrance to the new student housing complex, sent students to study abroad, supported Theatre NEO in their production expenses, provided a free ACT prep class for local high school students, supported several campus beautification efforts and funded scholarships for NEO's Top 10 Freshmen, just to name a few.

To date, a total of 81 President's Partners have contributed $203,000 to the campaign.

"The President's Partners are thrilled to provide Charlie with an opportunity to gain work experience on campus and utilize his creative talents," said Jennifer Hessee, executive director of the NEO Development Foundation.

McQuigg is studying music at NEO, and he plans to complete his education at a senior university, majoring in music composition with a minor emphasis in physics.

McQuigg was a member and co-founder of the NEO13 news team in 2012. Teaming up with founder Delayna Fitzgerald, McQuigg assisted in recruiting team members, dreaming up the potentialities of a future news station at a small-town community college, animating and creating graphics, as well as production.

McQuigg said, “It feels great to have been part of the initial spark to re-ignite the digital communication department at NEO. Delayna came to me with the idea of starting a news team, and we took it and ran with it.”

Their first week, the two students averaged at least 10 hours a day of video-editing.

“We were told time and time again that the show required countless man hours, and by one individual's estimates, half-a-million dollars to get this program off the ground, but we had the show recorded, edited, and posted online with all our own equipment and materials borrowed from departments around school,” McQuigg said. “The program is still in its humble beginnings, but the seed has been planted. Here, I see a fruitful investment for the future of NEO, and hopefully other people can see that as well.”
