News Anchor Emphasizes the Importance of Communication
Porter Ridge Middle welcomed Natalie Pasquarella, TV news anchor for WSOC. Ms. Pasquarella gave her audience of attentive 7th graders a glimpse into her daily routine. As the 5pm and 10pm news anchor, her work begins at 1:30pm and ends after 11pm. She made it clear that to be on top of her game, it is vastly important to use good communication skills such as reading, writing, and grammar. Students got involved by asking questions ranging from "What's your favorite sports teams?" to "What was the most devestating story you ever covered?" Natalie Pasquarella's visit may not be a top story, but everyone involved agrees that it was good news.
