TEC Teambuilding Night

The second week of January, TEC came to the PAC for a full twelve hours of fun. Together, we participated in activities to get to know one another and grow as a team overall. Then, we spent the rest of the night, or morning, bonding and playing games like ultimate frisbee, twister, and various video games.

TEC Sponsors 4th Make-a-Wish Child 

For the fourth year in a row, the Westlake Technical Entertainment Crew has worked hard to make a child's wish come true through the Make-a-Wish foundation. This year, 4-year-old Allen's wish of going to the Aulani Disney resort in Hawaii came true due to the generous support of our sponsors and Lexus of Austin in particular. 
This year was unique because the donation was done in honor of 12-year-old Pierce Broe. He visited the Performing Arts Center during his sister's dance recital and showed immediate interest in the technical aspects of the show. We had the opportunity to give him a tour of the facility and presented him with one of our black Technical Entertainment Crew shirts at the end of the night, making him an honorary member of our team. Pierce suffered from a form of brain cancer called Glioblastoma and unfortunately passed away on October 4th. Although we only knew Pierce for a short time, we were inspired by his amazing spirit, positive attitude and kind demeanor.
