On September 24, 2018 we had some visitors at the land. Senator Henry Stern, Secretary of State Alex Padilla, and Boardmember Schmerelson were among the group of visitors to talk about the importance of voting. Speeches were given by the senator, and the secretary of state as well as by our Associated Student Body President Azucena Ferrusca.
After the speeches were made encouraging students to pre-register to vote, students rushed to the back of the MPR to do just that. "The time is now" is a chant that the representatives kept reiterating to the crowd of young impressionable students.
Our very own KCAV crew also had the opportunity to not only film the entire event but to interview Boardmember Schmerelson , and Secretary Alex Padilla. Student reporter Isabelle Delos Santos got to bring California Senator Henry Stern to our KCAV Studio, where students Michael Duffy, Guadalupe Rosas, Gizzelle Rangel, David Navarro, and Jonathan Sanchez gave him a tour and then got to interview him with the full KCAV set up using our Tricaster live production swithcer system.
