NBC Nightly News to Feature My Sister’s Circle

My Sister’s Circle mentors and mentees

NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams will highlight My Sister’s Circle tonight. The talented Amy Robach interviewed me Wednesday morning in my home; the phenomenal crew spent the afternoon and evening getting some footage of Dallas Nicholas Elementary School and the surrounding neighborhoods, interviewing a graduating senior and her mentor (Candace and Hunter), and attending an after-school session with the younger girls. The associate producer will stay today to interview another mentor (Sandra Brummitt from Constellation) and visit Candace in school. They spent from 10-7 pm with us. It was a wonderful and inspiring day.

Also, on a local level, WBAL will air a segment during the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. news today to tease ahead into the nightly news. This will be an entirely different package so I’ve asked the principal of Frederick Douglass High School if MSC participant Ciera Hall, another graduating senior, can participate in the local interview on campus. Her mentor, Malika, will join us.

We’re honored to share the news and advocate for our girls every chance we can. We hope the coverage motivates others to get involved within the community in whatever way they choose.
