Nacogdoches Students visit KTRE to learn about television careers

UNDATED (KTRE) - Students from Nacogdoches Independent School District's (NISD) Learning Program visited KTRE-TV Tuesday to hear about career opportunities.

The learning program, When I Grow Up, lasts three weeks and is designed to help students explore careers and jobs. The program also encourages students to stay in school and to attend college.

The students toured the television station and asked probing questions about the various jobs. When asked their favorite part of the tour, several said the newsroom. Though most said they weren't sure about what they wanted to be when they grew up, they spoke highly of the program that allows them to hear from a wide variety of professionals in the community.

The television station was the first tour the group has done, however, the students have heard from several speakers including a representative from the Texas Attorney General's office and the Nacogdoches County Extension Service.

They plan to visit Stephen F. Austin State University next week to see what a college campus is like. The careers program is just one of several student enrichment programs provided by NISD under the When I Grow Up banner.

Laurie Gallant is a teacher at McMichael Middle School.  The students in the group are from various schools within NISD.

Remi was brought into the shelter as a stray about three weeks ago. "He gets along with the other dogs. He still in his puppy stage so he still has a lot of time to go around play with everyone," said Torion Johnson, animal control officer.  Remi is a heeler-spani...
