For the past 32 years, Leonard "Lenny" Marble has been the key to local public schools getting the word out -- literally. As Sound/TV Engineer for Newport News Public Schools, Marble was in charge of the public address systems; classroom televisions; the audio for presentations, performances and TV productions; and all of the audio-visual needs of the schools.
NNPS-TV recently hosted students from Dozier and Passage middle schools who were participating in a two-week robotics summer camp at Dozier.
The next School Board Meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 5 at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be broadcast live on NNPS-TV (Cox 47/FiOS 17).
Video-recording the commencement exercises on the Great Lawn at Christopher Newport University is an annual tradition for Telecom. This marks the seventh year they recorded and produced the event for DVD.
High school students from the Telecommunications Center assisted the City of Newport News' television station (NNTV Cox 48/FiOS 19) in the production of a live broadcast of the city budget hearing on April 15.
Telecom students have a packed schedule this time of year. They assist with video-recording Christopher Newport University's graduation ceremony and all six of the NNPS graduations. They are part of the crew for numerous end-of-the-year awards ceremonies. And they continue to work School Board meetings and regular shows like "Fuzion Fitness," all while finishing up their final projects for class.
