Don Cerrone was recognized for partnering with Cablevision
, the Independent Film Channel
(IFC) and the Bronx borough president to offer students the opportunity to create a film documenting the history and rise to excellence of William Howard Taft High School and the Bronx, the fall and decline of the high school and the Bronx and the return to glory of the Bronx and new schools like Jonathan Levin High School
which is housed in the old Taft High School building. The project, “Recapturing Glory,” focused on the use of enhanced technological materials to promote a higher standard of education and expression.
In his podcast
(MP3, 36MB), Cerrone discusses the way in which the filming and production of the documentary, as well as the content, “opened students up to an understanding of the environment in which they live and generated in them an interest in capturing history on film for current and future generations.”
