McGavock High School students in the CMT Academy of Digital Design & Communications will be making their television debut next week! The students recently produced a PSA promoting Metro Schools’ 1st Choice Festival, which will be running on Comcast Cable. If that isn’t cool enough, they will also appear in a special segment on More at Midday, Oct. 4, on Channel 4 News, who is the media sponsor of the 1st Choice Festival. Morning anchor Ian Reitz will be at the festival.


Earlier this week, WSMV sent a producer/photojournalist out to catch up with the students and see why families should make plans to attend the 1st Choice Festival. What students didn’t know was they would actually get to shadow the producer -- help run the camera, set up lights, and make sure audio checked out. Check out some behind the scenes footage from the shoot below as well as the PSA produced by McGavock.

Caitlyn P., a rising senior at Hillwood, joined roughly 20 students from several district high schools in an internship that opened their eyes to the medical profession in a way they never imagined. The student worked alongside medical professionals, learned how to accurately record patient information and performed a number of other key clinic tasks. And while these experiences were great, it was the feeling of belonging to a team of people that were really making a difference.
