The Willow Canyon High School (WCHS) TV Production and Media Club partnered with High School Nation to cover Major League Baseball's Spring Training. Six students had the opportunity to interview members of the Seattle Mariners organization and Major League Baseball (MLB) managers as part of Spring Training Media Day.

The students interviewed the voice of the Seattle Mariners, Rick Rizz, who told the students to find what they value, make it part of their career and work toward their goals. Students were also able to interview pitcher Yusei Kikuchi, alongside members of the national and international press. After spending time with the Mariners, the students had the opportunity to interview MLB managers.
This event was filmed by our partner, High School Nation. A video link and photos from the event are attached.

The Willow Canyon High School TV Production and Media Club works to prepare students for employment in various positions within radio, television, and film industries.  Working with groups like High School Nation for real-world opportunities is a key component to Career and Technical Education because students gain authentic experience in their chosen field.  In addition to the MLB interviews, WCHS TV Production and Media Club students have also qualified for the state competition with SkillsUSA.
