NNPS Telecom students did their usual fine job video-recording the high school graduations, most of which were held in the Hampton Coliseum the second weekend in June.
The NNPS high school graduations were held June 9, 11 and 12. NNPS-TV video-recorded the commencement ceremonies for replay on NNPS-TV Cox 47/FiOS 17. DVDs will be available for purchase. *Note: There has been a change in the times of Woodside's broadcast on July 1.
The "Sports Highlights" team of Telecom Supervisor Ray Price (Executive Producer and Director) and Greg Bicouvaris (Show Host) was recognized by the City of Newport News for 25 years of service producing the TV show featuring interviews with local and national sports figures. The city council issued a "Proclamation of Recognition" congratulating them and wishing them continued success in the future.
The NNPS-TV production team has won a number of awards this year, with two videos that literally went "above and beyond" garnering two awards each.
A new series of training videos is being produced by NNPS-TV: "Teach Me TV," which is teacher training geared toward new teachers, but that also allows all teachers to keep up with cutting edge teaching techniques.
NNPS-TV is providing tours and hands-on learning to three student TV crews this spring. Students from McIntosh Elementary School toured the studio in March, and Saunders Elementary School students will visit in late April. Additionally, An Achievable Dream Middle School's Broadcast Club will enjoy a tour at the end of the month.
The NNPS-TV production team recently created a series of training videos for school employees. The team most often visits NNPS schools to report on the activities and successes there, but also occasionally delves into professional development in the form of training videos.
