“Even though the event revolves around vintage cars, there is a bigger picture here at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix,” adds Kolesar. “All of the proceeds from the event provide funding for the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Allegheny Valley School, which helps kids with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Pittsburgh region.”
Kolesar is a member of the Titan swim team, a director and producer at Westminster Cable, and one of five students in the documentary production course. The course spans two semesters moving students from the research and concept launches of their documentaries into production and post-production. The experiences culminates in the world premiere of the projects during the November 2017 Student Documentary Showcase on campus alongside classmates Emiley Westfall, Justin Wilson, Troy Jackson, and Charles Borges.
