Observed CADEkids prevention specialist Tony Smith at Franklin Elementary School today in Philadelphia. Principal Roslynn Sample Greene is an active, engaged leader. Tony conducted an impactful session with 8th graders on impulse control, making decisions and avoiding drugs, alcohol and violence. CADEkids works. Wonder what would happen if it were in all schools?
Auction hopping at PA String Band where autism event is going on this afternoon. Lots of folks from Mummers Clubs here…Ferko, Quaker City, Greater Overbrook and more. Great auction items. WiredFM playing jams. Blooper is here. So cool how many people care about kids. Benefit helps autism programs at CHOP.
DeBella today joined Sue Serio of Fox29, Blaise Howard of MoreFM, Matt Delucia of NBC10 and Kristin Long of Tribune Broadcasting (company that owns PHL17) in giving advice to 20 college students who this afternoon received scholarships from the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia. Lauren Hight (seen to the right) of Cabrini College is one of the recipients.
Insight was the main course served today to these future journalists and broadcasters. Kristin Long read from obituaries and commencement addresses and you know what, it was good stuff. All 5 speakers offered solid career advice and glimpses into career paths in the broadcasting business. The event was funny, real and thoughtful, and took place at Bala Golf Club in Philadelphia. Nice job, Broadcast Pioneers. And, John, you’ll always have Pittsburgh.
