Media Girls tour WCTV Chesapeake Television

The GSCCC Media Girls got together for some fun this summer. 

Thanks to City of Chesapeake’s Senior Public Communications Coordinator Elizabeth Vaughn, who is also a Girl Scout alum, Media Girls toured the WCTV Chesapeake Television station and got to take over the controls. 

They received direction from Video Production Coordinator Ron Strickland, Video Operations Coordinator Maynard Scales and Public Communications Specialist Michael Barnett. 

While on the set, the girls learned firsthand how much work goes into producing the weekly broadcast. From rolling the prompter for the Girl Scouts on air to floor directing, the Media Girls communicated with one another to make sure the final product was well put together.

"This was such a fun opportunity," Girl Scout Senior Summer Tatum said. 

Juniors through Ambassadors are invited to learn the ins and outs of media and communications and how to represent GSCCC in the media through the GSCCC Media Girl team. The application period to be part of the team starts again in October. As a Media Girl, girls are invited to write for the GSCCC blog, take part in TV or radio interviews, create Girl Scout videos, represent Girl Scouts at exciting events and more!
