The Week in Review is a district favorite, but who’s behind the camera? That would be the Good News Ambassadors (GNA), the liaisons between the WCS Communications Department and the schools.
Each GNA stays up-to-date on what’s happening in the school building and submits clips each week to add to the Week in Review. This is on top of their other responsibilities in the school.
“In a district with 47 school sites, our Good News Ambassadors serve a vital role,” said WCS Communications Director Carol Birdsong. “Without them, it would be impossible for us to showcase all of the wonderful things happening in each school on a weekly basis. These men and women work incredibly hard to make sure their school gets the attention it deserves.”
Each August, the GNA’s attend a training session where they learn about everything from the district’s media protocol to the proper use of social media. At this year’s meeting, the Communications Department had a special gift for the group as each GNA was given a superhero cape.
“We just thought it would be a fun way to thank them for everything they do,” said Birdsong. “They are a valuable part of the communications team, and to us they are superheroes.”
