Univision’s ¡U62 En Ruta! Primera Hora Live visited Popham Elementary School on Friday, January 31, to broadcast several segments live on the channel’s morning show. The station broadcasts in San Antonio and Austin, and also featured extended interviews on Facebook Live.
Segments included Principal Jennifer Spears, the Popham choir under the direction of Jediah Gonzalez, a visit to a first-grade dual language class, and conversation with parents. Principal Spears shared about the impact of Literacy First and dual-language programs, as well as the positive impacts parent volunteers have on campus. The choir impressed hosts Carime Hernandez and Leslie Montoya with their renditions of three songs, the first “Baila Esta Cumbia” by Selena, the other two “World Peace” and “Veterans Thank You,” composed by Choir Director Gonzalez.
“The Popham Elementary community is appreciative that Univision 62 chose to visit us this morning. Our students were able to display their amazing talent in this unique opportunity to be featured on television around the region,” said Principal Spears, “I also want to thank our wonderful parents. Today would not have been possible without them.”
