She is also working on a documentary about the Harley Langdale Jr. Foundation. Immediately after graduation, I have been given the wonderful opportunity to be the projections programmer at Peach State Summer Theatre here at VSU, she said. I am so looking forward to working with the talented and hard-working individuals who perform and produce shows at Peach State and provide fun and enjoyable entertainment for the Valdosta community. I am also sending out numerous applications to organizations to share the knowledge and training I have received from VSU. I would love to pursue a career in video production, videography, and/or editing in a media setting, but I am open to other opportunities as well.Her supportive family includes dad Bill Collins, mom Jill Collins, sister Casey Collins, grandmothers Grace Stewart and Vera Collins, and grandfathers C.C.
