The Gwen Ahearn Production Studio
About Gwen Ahearn
When Gwen Ahearn retired from the Berkley School District, she left behind a legacy. Co-workers, students, and community members knew that Gwen was always there to support them, lend a helping hand, and keep them informed.
Gwen was the driving force behind the district’s video production program. She worked tirelessly to get the equipment and know-how the students needed. She supported the program in any way she could. She sparked interest and enthusiasm in the students and worked with them on projects to foster passion for the industry.
This fund was established in 2011.
