HPU Communication Student Featured in Kid-Focused Series

HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 22, 2010 – Thanks to the hard work and dedication by Chandler DeWitt, a sophomore studying in the Nido R. Qubein School of Communication at High Point University, TV stations in cities across the nation including Atlanta and High Point are airing a four-part series of news reports and a half-hour television special both entitled, “Living from the Inside Out.”

The special will air in High Point on WGHP Fox 8 at 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 25. It previously aired in Atlanta, and the Atlanta Journal Constitution recently featured an article about the subject. Encores of the show are planned to run locally in 2011.

DeWitt, who has always had a passion for children, had the chance to be a part of the video series and half-hour special thanks to her parents, who own a multi-media education company that produces educational curricula and the Connect with Kids television series. She previously penned a book, “Inside Out: Real Stories about the Inner Choices that Shape our Lives,” published by Parents & Company. The book aims to get kids to really think about the choices they make and how it affects their lives and was recently featured in an article appearing in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The news series and television special feature real kids and their true stories about the challenges they face every day and were filmed in part on the HPU campus. DeWitt, HPU student Kelsey Clougherty and Dr. Nido Qubein, president of HPU are all featured in the news series and half-hour television special.
