ASU students wanted for nationally televised event Sept. 27


September 23, 2010

Arizona State University students who are interested in leadership careers and learning more about the teaching profession are invited to participate in a national event taking place Monday morning, Sept. 27, that will be telecast live on MSNBC, msnbc.com and educationnation.com.

Students will gather in Studio B of the Cronkite/KAET building at 555 N. Central Ave. on the Downtown Phoenix campus to watch a special address by U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, “Teach for Tomorrow: A Reverse Commencement Address.” The live telecast, which students will watch on a big screen, takes place at 11 a.m.

After the telecast, several ASU students will have the opportunity to ask questions of Secretary Duncan related to teaching and the profession. Syleste Rodriquez from the Phoenix NBC affiliate, Channel 12, will interview the students, who will be broadcast live on national television.

There is limited seating for this event so register early.

Lunch will provided for all students at the conclusion of the event. Attendees must be seated at 10 a.m. and the event concludes at 12:30 p.m. Members of the ASU Teachers College will host the students and provide information and answer questions on the university's teaching program.

ASU was chosen as one of only four institutions of higher education nationally to participate in the NBC News national telecast of the Education Nation Summit. The other schools chosen include Howard University, Miami Dade College and Michigan State.

Students interested in attending should RSVP directly to Molly Hasbargen at molly.hasbargen@asu.edu.
