Webcast: Brackenridge High students stream White House Hispanic Community Action Summit

REPLAY THE VIDEO: In 2011, NOWCastSA teamed up with BrackTV students to webcast all eight SAISD high school graduation ceremonies. On  March 9, 2012, Brackenridge High School journalism and video production students will join local and national media professionals in covering the White House Hispanic Community Action Summit, which will be held at Fox Tech High School from 12:30-3:30 p.m.

According to a press release, broadcast journalism and video production students from Brackenridge’s Media Productions Magnet will lend their camera work and editing expertise by assisting with a webcast of the event, which will be streamed live through a White House web feed, and can also be seen right here on this page. Other journalism students will serve as roving reporters, providing live feeds summarizing discussions held at the simultaneous forums on education, jobs and the economy, healthcare and immigration.

The summit is one of a number of similar events the White House is holding across the country to meet with and solicit input from community leaders, educators, small business owners and state and local elected officials. U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan will deliver a keynote speech at the event.

You can replay the video from the March 8 town hall on college affordability and Hispanic enrollment and completion rates with Sec. Duncan here.
