Harry Hibshman was a great man. He worked for an organization that cares deeply about its history. So much so, that Ephrata National Bank has an elegant room deep within its headquarters filled with photographs and artifacts from its past. Many of which feature Hibshman.
We had the honor of filming a documentary about this great man, and the legacy he left through Ephrata High School’s Hibshman scholarship. For 50 years, ENB has given millions of dollars to graduating students at Ephrata High School through this scholarship. And the impact has been huge – both for today’s students, and even the original Hibshman Scholars in 1965 (two of whom are featured in this production).
There was a clear sense of respect, and almost reverence as we commenced interviews. It’s great to work with an organization that isn’t putting up a front – ENB really cares about this. They have a great respect for their past, and are truly proud of the impact this scholarship has had.
When we capture true, genuine, compelling stories, our work as filmmakers becomes elevated. It becomes more than just a video about a scholarship. This was a great story, told from the heart. We can’t ask for more than that!
