Bloem had a niche for film making and visual storytelling. His students learned advanced skills in video color correction, motion graphics and lighting.
"Brent came along at a good time, when our program was growing," said Waubonsie Valley media teacher Brian Wiencek. "He added a lot to the film portion of our curriculum. He's definitely left his mark on WVTV, and the students and staff will miss him."
Bloem produced Metea Valley's news show, The Mane, as well as teaching English at Waubonsie.
