At the February meeting of the Council of Deputies of Sovetsky District, the Head of the Sovetsky District Vladislav Makarov presented honorary certificates to first-year students of the Department of Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations of the Institute of Media, Social Sciences and Humanities Aleksandr Mikhalev and Sergei Kachko for their assistance in implementing the digital television connection program in the Sovetsky District of the city of Chelyabinsk. At the end of last year, the guys became volunteers of the program and on a voluntary basis accepted and worked out more than thirty applications for the connection of digital television for residents of the villages of the Sovetsky District.
As student volunteers note, they had to deal expeditiously with different problems and issues of residents and solve them at a high level. The people who applied for the connection were very different in terms of age and other social characteristics, so they had to find their own special approach to each person. By and large, communication with the residents of the villages was very interesting and constructive.
Aleksandr Mikhalev shared his impression of participating in the project: "I made an acquaintance with various interesting people, saw family lives, experienced the atmosphere of different families, and I am very happy about that. While working with Sergei Kachko as volunteers, we learned a lot of things: we took a close look at technological aspects of connecting digital set-top boxes, developed skills in good understanding of maps and got a unique experience in communicating with different people. I am very glad that I had the opportunity to get this distinctive experience! This experience will absolutely be useful in further professional activity of a specialist in advertising and public relations."
