They have a nose for news and they are putting their talents to good use!
Introducing Cougar News, responsible for the newscasts at Asheville Middle School!
Our own Tammy Watford was honored to be a guest anchor this week at the school.
Morning anchor, Sam, got to interview Tammy about working as a journalist.
It's a small crew, but they do a good job getting everything done.
Chloe is the director and Pixie runs the teleprompter and inserts the video.
Students say the extra curricular activity teaches them how to work as a team and it has improved their communication skills.
Most importantly it has taught them to appreciate each other.
Some of the cougar news members say the experience has only wet their appetite and that they plan to pursue a career in journalism.
Good luck to each and every one of them!
