One of the first orders of business when the Telecom students come back to school is to elect SkillsUSA officers for the new school year.
Students in last year's TV-I class won a Bronze Telly Award for their production of the Wooten Brothers concert at Denbigh High.
Students who are enrolled in TVI or TVII are invited each year to attend Remote Video Production Training. The training helps them achieve proficiencies that are required as part of their course, but more immediately it enables them to complete the task at hand: video-recording high school football games for broadcast on NNPS-TV (Cox Channel 47 and Verizon FiOS Channel 17).
The next School Board Meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 21, at 6:30 p.m, with a work session at 5:30 p.m. The meeting and work session will be broadcast live on NNPS-TV (Cox 47/FiOS 17).
The fall football TV schedule is out, and there will be three television broadcasts by NNPS-TV (Cox channel 47/Verizon FiOS 17). This will be the 24th year that NNPS-TV has televised high school football.
Every year, NNPS-TV records and airs three Newport News Public Schools awards ceremonies: Teachers of the Year, Salute to Success, and the STAR Awards. The NNPS Retirement Banquet was also recorded for replay. These ceremonies will continue to play on NNPS-TV throughout September.
