    Despite all the cold weather this morning, your Cougar Broadcasting Network crew and the WHC-R radio crew took on the TCU campus this morning. There, they met with Professor Dustin Hahn who teaches Video Production and Sports Broadcasting at the Bob Shieffer College of Communication (Shout out to Katie Fonville for this connection!). The crew was able to witness a live radio broadcast from KTCU-FM 88.7 The Choice, tour the university's studio, and learn about college expectations. 

    The crew also had the great privilege of taking a tour of the CBS 11 studio and getting to interact with all the great people with this organization. The crew learned about job expectations and requirements to enter in this field...and PAID job internships through the station for college!!! Shout out to Ms. Patty for being our middle woman to get the connection on the tour!

    All in all, the production crew received high praises from both Fort Worth iconic establishments on their behavior and presence. 

    And a final shout out to Mr. Bielss and Mrs. Brown (Copen) on being a part to making today a successful day for these students!

  • TAFE Region Officer Training Conference

    Posted by Mrs. Fonville on 4/29/2019

    April 25-27
    Tyshj’nique West, region 11B vice president,  traveled to Spicewood, Texas to participate in the 2019 Texas Association of Future Educators state/region officer training workshop. This exclusive retreat for TAFE leaders across the state of Texas is designed to give our student officers an opportunity to develop leadership skills, participate in team building activities, and work together collaboratively to plan their regional conferences. The conference was a success and gave Tyshj’nique tools to leader her TAFE region into the upcoming school year.
