MSG Classroom Spring 2018 “Above the Hurdles”
For the Spring 2018 semesters, Garden of Dreams teens from our partner, WHEDco, participated in the MSG Classroom program. Each week, these students would meet with different professionals from MSG Networks and The Madison Square Garden Company to learn about different jobs within the company and gain insight into the many career options available within the television industry. Meeting weekly, the students attended a Rangers game, watching the game from a production perspective. They also had the opportunity to sit in on a Rangers production meeting, interview a Rangers player, and tour the MSG Networks production truck.
Throughout the semester, the student worked on creating and producing their own segment with the help of MSG Networks professionals. This year’s piece was titled, “Above the Hurdles.” Each teen had a specific role in the production, which ranged from writer to host to cameraperson. These students even had the chance to interview Olympic gold medalist Kendall Coyne and Knicks alumni Larry Johnson
