Wednesday, 1 May 2013 | Access Hour
The originally-scheduled host, Dr. V, has had to cancel and will reschedule for some time in the fall. But, some kids from the south part of the listening area have jumped in on short notice to produce an exciting program…about Beloit Memorial High School and its home, the city of Beloit!
So you think you know about Beloit? Poor Rock River city?…lost industry?…poorest school district in the state?…disadvantaged?…rich lady talking to Governor Walker about crushing unions with right-to-work laws?….
There’s more! A bunch of students from Beloit Memorial High School will produce an Access Hour program to showcase their school — it’s more than a losing football team! They’ll talk about their award-winning newspaper, the Increscent, the oldest student paper in Wisconsin, and their Tommy-winning theater production — they’re up for the Tommy again this year — and other very cool stuff about one of the hidden gems of the state!
The school sits along the Rock River in the center of town, which is beautiful there, with parkland and bike paths…beginning to sound like Madison…
