Our local high school has an award winning radio program. The students get real life experience with the rules of the FCC, being Disc Jockeys, mixing music, learning public communications skills, live streaming, sports announcing, and so much more.
Today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST the students are hosting a fundraiser to help support their beloved radio station. Tune in live by clicking THIS LINK. Then scroll down and choose the WWPT STREAM.
I'll confess, Secundogeniture is the student station manager and he has worked very hard with his team to make this year's fundraiser a great success. Together with Campbell and Emma, they went door-to-door to the local businesses asking for sponsorship and donations for this year's fundraiser. Then they coordinated plans to pick up those donations or have them delivered. They logged hundreds of hours planning, emailing, meeting and executing their wonderful plan. They also worked to get great live entertainment for today's reunion.
Thanks Coffee An' Donut for donating so many delicious donuts!
Here's Secundogeniture at last year's reunion with staff advisors Mike Zito (aka "Zeeto") and Jim Honeycutt.
Tune in at 1:00 p.m. to listen to the award winning 1974 band. Mr. Forgett (gray t-shirt) is also a math teacher at the high school so there's an added bonus! Here's their picture from last May.
Today at the kick-off, the excitement was brewing. The DJ's were enthusiastic and already collected $450 in the first 90 minutes.
The tech crew was busy making sure the livestream was working well.
Jim Honeycutt was busy getting things ready this morning - but took time to pose for a picture
Mike Zito was getting everything ready for the phonathon. Please call and make your pledge now!
The students work very hard to bring you the best local radio - so let's show them our support.
