|MICHEYL STEINWAY RECORDS THE AUDIENCE AT THE YSW CLOSE|
KOCT was a joyous participant in Oceanside’s recent Youth Success Week. We invited the Superintendent of Oceanside Unified School District Duane Coleman to the KOCT studios to record daily messages that were then played in the classrooms each morning. Each day Mr. Coleman highlighted one of the eight keys of excellence. These character building mantras were developed by Quantum Learning Network and its President Bobbie DePorter. The videos were edited by KOCT’s Micheyl Steinway.

KOCT’s efforts did not stop there. KOCT’s Production Supervisor, Angela Miranda led the KOCT production staff to capture both the opening ceremony held at the Quantum Learning Network AND the closing ceremony which was held at the Junior Seau Beach Amphitheater. The San Diego Union-Tribune wrote a good article about this innovative week of youth empowerment.

These two News briefs programs were edited by Toby Maysey and will be played throughout the KOCT programming day. They are also posted as Video On Demand on KOCT.ORG. The Community Alliance for Youth Success, or CAYS, has been working for three years to help Oceanside students become successful in their lives and it all culminated into this week long event. Thanks to Angela, Micheyl, Toby and the entire KOCT production crew for their efforts to help our youth succeed!
