PORTALES - Four Ft. Sumner High School students and their teacher visited Eastern New Mexico University in Portales on Monday, April 16, to sharpen their broadcasting skills at the campus public broadcasting station, KENW-TV.
The students are Kendra Bailey, sophomore camera technician; Emma Moyer, sophomore anchor; Alex Rodriguez, junior audio producer; and Ashley Landreth, junior anchor. Their teacher/advisor is Sharon West.
This four-student team won the State Business Professionals of America News Team competition and will compete in Chicago.
Each team was given two stories at the state competition to create a newscast. The stories were assigned “Dual Enrollment for High School Students” and “Utilization of Technology for Fundraising and Its Effect Between Generations.”
Ft. Sumner graduate Vincent Rodriguez, an ENMU senior broadcast production major, arranged the visit.
