Stan Clayton works as a Broadcasting Engineer in WIU's Television Services Dept. Stan began his career at WIU in October 1991 as an Electronics Technician in the University Union. Stan's current responsibilities include maintaining the equipment in the Television Studio and also field cameras. He also repairs electronics for Television Services. One of the things Stan enjoys most about his job is working with new and ever-changing technologies. He shares, "The Television Studio was upgraded this summer to High Definition. That is exciting!" Stan also remembers fondly one of his most memorable experiences, the Centennial Celebration Year! "I worked with all of the audio/visual needs for the entire Centennial Celebration Year. It was a special time to work with these events all year long!" Stan credits two people with helping him in his position when he first came to Television Services. "Richard Sample and Jerry Markley were both very instrumental in helping me when I first took this position. They are very knowledgeable and were always willing to share their knowledge with me." Two of Stan's favorite events to attend at WIU are the International Bazaar and the Agricultural Mechanization Show. "Very seldom do we miss either of these. The students do a great job of putting both events together for us to enjoy!" When you don't see Stan fixing and repairing television equipment, you might find him restoring antique radios and he enjoys being an amateur HAM radio operator. However, his pride and joy are his four grandchildren!
