I have competition

 A good snapshot stops a moment from running away.  ~Eudora Welty

I had some competition at my last assignment at Woodson Elementary School. These two gals were on the job shooting for Wave-TV, the school's TV station.

Every morning the school starts the day with a little video that includes the Pledge of Allegiance. We did the "Pledge" when I was in school but all we had for sound was one of those old speakers that sounded like a broken fast-food speaker. - Ruh ruh wa wa. And remember those old 8mm films. Oh, my!

Today schools have digital TVs, cool sound equipment, and their own media.

We have some wonderful schools and many dedicated teachers in Somerset, and they have all the tools available to steer our students in any direction they wish to go in life.

We, too, do our Pledge of Allegiance led by the children...and a morning "News" show...Isn't technology a wonderful thing?
Great shot of two lovely girls.
I wish them the best as they continue their education.
