CARTHAGE, MO.--- The next video game you play could be designed by a Carthage teen. Arad Reed just graduated from Carthage High School. He plans to attend the University of California, Santa Barbara to learn how to design video games. He has been playing them all of his life, and he says it's something he's always wanted to do. However, he wants to take a summer course to learn how to design cell phone games, but he is asking for help to raise the funds. The tuition is $5,000 and he started a website to help him reach his goal. So far, he has raised $1,000.

"I've been playing video games since I was a kid, and I just think it'd be really awesome to make them as well," said Arad Reed, Carthage High School Graduate.
