Roosevelt partners with YMCA for video project

When the Executive Director of the Walzem Family YMCA (5538 Walzem Road) needed a video production to showcase his YMCA to the public, he knew exactly who to contact. That’s when he pitched his idea to the Roosevelt High School Family Specialist Christopher Cadena.

“Of Course! Roosevelt wants to be involved to strengthen our relationship with a local business!” Mr. Steven Willaford, Roosevelt H.S. Career & Technology teacher agreed and with Principal Melvin Echard’s approval, students Marisa Callaway & Patrick Stone were hard at work.

A production story board in PowerPoint form was created, TEKS were addressed, planning began, more meetings with the Walzem Family YMCA, taping schedules were addressed, a rough draft was approved by Mr. Echard and students completed the final product incorporating pictures taken by Mrs. Willaford.

This is a great example of H.S. students being career ready and technology savvy by the completion of H.S.
