One Class at a Time Grant Gives Kids a Look at the TV Biz

Last December, Zack Binder got an early Christmas present when we presented him with a $1,000 check from HOI 19 and CEFCU, so we decided to check in to see how he is putting the money to good use.

Mr. Binder runs the Limestone Community High Schools Broadcasting program, known as Rocket One TV.

The students put on a daily show with news, announcements, sports and activities.

Mr. Binder says they are excited to put the money to good use, "We have a growing interest in the program. We have so many students who go out in the field and report. So, a couple new cameras will really allow us to send more students on location, to volleyball games and other things going on in the school."

Mr. Binder also wants to buy some more microphones for the on-air talent.

We'll start giving away more $1,000 One Class at a Time Grants in September so nominate your favorite teacher today!
