I just wanted to thank everyone at Mt. Zion High School in Clayton County last Friday. Loraine Foushee invited me to come speak to her Video Production class about what I do. The kids in her class are learning all about production. From how to edit and shoot video to directing the newscast to running the cameras and even being in front of the camera!
I talked about my experiences in TV and how I got into the business. I also gave them a few tips on how to be successful not only in TV, but in life (well, at least I think the tips were helpful!). At the end of each class I spoke to we stretched our legs and went outside so I could show the kids out Weather Chaser van. I think they liked all the flashing lights, neon, and loudspeaker more than the fact that we actually try and chase tornado's in it!
Members of the StormTracker46 Weather Team are always coming out to speak to various schools and civic groups. If you want us to come visit you all you have to do is fill out the form on our website here. Just look for the school visit worksheet on the side of the page.
Thanks again to everyone at Mt. Zion High School for your hospitality.
