It was a real-life lesson in TV news journalism for some students at Copper Hills High School. An NBC News crew and reporter stopped by the school to interview teacher Rickee Stewart. Ms. Stewart is getting married soon, but rather than requesting wedding gifts for herself, she asked that her guests give items for homeless teens and students in need at Copper Hills. The response from the community has been overwhelming, attracting the attention of local and national news media.
NBC News reporter Joe Fryer’s story about Rickee and what started as her wedding registry service project at Copper Hills High is expected to air on NBC Nightly News in the coming days.
