Students star in commercial

December 4, 2003

Albany-- Some Albany second graders got their 15 minutes of fame today.

Actually, it was more like 30 seconds of fame. Lake Park Elementary students and their teacher were chosen to be in a new series of commercials for HCA Palmyra Medical Centers. A nationally known production team shot the spot.

Principal Robert Youngblood says the experience has taught the kids a lot about what goes on behind the scenes, "They learn it's not just a 30-second shot that even those little commercials on t-v take hours to produce."

The shoot took several hours. The commercial will begin airing early next year.
