Bill Keith is a proud man these days.
Earlier this month, eight of the students he manages at the Plymouth Canton Community Schools radio station, WSDP 88.1 The Park, were honored with awards by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters Foundation.
The awards were presented to the students during the annual conference and expo of the state group on March 11.
“We’re always excited to see our students shine among the best of the best in Michigan. They continue to create great radio that is worthy of the recognition that they receive. I’m so proud of them,” Keith said in a prepared statement.
The Canton Educational Park students were selected from 400 high school entries from 23 schools in the radio and television competition.
Awards presented included First Place for On Air Personality or Team to Annie Wellman, a Plymouth High School Senior and Valerie Sanders, a senior at Salem High School. Michael Adzima, a junior at Plymouth High School, and Christian Alvarado, a Salem High School junior, won Honorable Mention awards in the same category.

Honorable Mention in that category went to Sanders, Wellman and Krumm.
Krumm was also honored with a First Place award in the Talk Show category.
