Enterprising student’s work draws attention from local newscaster.

A public service announcement created by Sylvan Hills EAST students Ethan McGee and Michael Lock was aired on a local newscast Monday, February 22. The purpose of the PSA was to alert people about the recently passed Paul’s Law, which bans texting while driving. The students had contacted local television stations about their project and received interest from several. 


Craig O’Neill of Today’s THV visited the Sylvan Hills EAST classroom and interviewed Ethan, Michael and EAST facilitator Jeannie Gray for the 6:30 p.m. newscast. He also visited with several other students about additional projects. His report highlighted the PSA and its creators as well as the Sylvan Hills EAST program overall.
