WE THE KIDS took a group of Heroes Camp teens from Mishawaka, IN into the TV studio to interview their Coach J C Cornell. Here’s the message I received from PJ Perri, Executive Director of Heroes Camp organization.
“We can not say enough good things about our experience yesterday. The kids want to do it again and asking about the next time already. Thanks for making that impact and opportunity for our youth.” PJ

We use the TV studio as a tool to get kids interested in learning more about History…and it works!
