As most of you know, I (Scotty) teach Middle School at OLA (Our Lady of the Assumption) in East Charlotte, the very same august institution that Evan and I attended when the Charlotte Hornets became an essential part of our lives.
Today, OLA students were lucky to have the wonderful Diana Rugg(who we have established a relationship with through BBTB) of WCNC-TV, (NBC Charlotte) speak to them about her glamorous and exciting life in TV news. She gave special tips to our 7th grade Broadcast Team on the art of the interview and just what skills are needed to make a good reporter. She also spoke extensively about the importance of contributing to our community – something all of us in the BBTB movement can certainly appreciate. We just want to take a moment to once again thank Diana for sharing her talents and enthusiasm with our grateful students.
Diana – we from the OLA Family look forward to seeing you around Charlotte representing the OLA Phoenix in your new athletic t-shirt!
Evan and I made a promise to ourselves that we would use some of the opportunities BBTB has provided us to better the Charlotte community, because thats what this entire thing was all about. We have chosen to become an official sponsor for the new Athletic Dept OLA has started this year. We will be taking the money we raised from the t-shirts we have sold and put it back into the very school that raised us and made us who we are today.
