“And the award goes to…”
Week in and week out, the HearSay team works to bring you programming that is as entertaining as it is informative. Though spending our lunch hour with you four days a week is a reward in and of itself, it’s always nice to receive some official recognition. We’re thrilled to be the recipients of six nominations from the Virginia Association of Broadcasters in categories ranging from “Best Human Interest Series” to “Outstanding Feature Reporting.” Today we bring you one of the shows that netted us a statuette at the 2012 VAB Awards.

Charting a New Course for NPS
Over a year ago, Norfolk Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Samuel King was hired to revitalize a division that was once seen as a model of urban education but has experienced a sharp downturn in student performance.  A newly revealed component of his plans to revitalize Norfolk's public schools involves the conversion of 10 of the district's 46 schools into public charters with focused themes that would change both the school calendar and the way curriculums are taught.  Cathy Lewis speaks with leadership from Norfolk Public Schools about the bold plan to change the way Norfolk students learn.

Scheduled Guests:
Dr. L'Tanya Simmons
- Deputy Superintendent for Operations
Dr. Linda Sevigny - Deputy Superintendent for Teaching and Learning
