The Youth Connections Program was a collaboratin with WCCA TV 13 and the MCAS Program of the Worcester Public Schools. The youth invovled wanted to explore and learn more about Worcester. While reading the book “3,000 Degrees”, the youth went to different historical locations, museums, and fire stations in Worcester. During the program, they interviewed Mayor Joseph Petty along with several firefighters who were at the Cold Storage Fire in 1999. Not only did they learn about Worcester, but they had a great time in the process!
Over coming serious illness is not easy. But we are trying to keep hope alive, WCCA TV’s Video Jam and BANDEDGE ask you to please help Jake Gregg
Following many months of being very sick, at only 20 years old, Jake was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on May 29. AML is a fast acting cancer of the bone marrow and blood, rare in anyone under the age of 65. He was immediately transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut, to be treated by some of the best Doctors in the World. Upon his arrival to the Hospital, Jake also suffered a massive stroke within the first few hours. As a result of this, he is currently paralyzed on his left side, and struggling to speak.
Jake has already undergone many platelet transfusions, apheresis procedures, and started an aggressive 7 day Chemotherapy treatment on May 30.
Jake is guitarist/Banjo player with the band SUNCOOKED.
WCCA TV participated in, as well as videotaped, the Youth Summit held at City Hall. about 60 people attended this event. City Councilor Saria Rivera sought input from the community. The challenges facing youth are many from racial, poverty, health disparities, and lack of communication. WCCA TV plays a vital role in helping our young people to overcome these issues. TV 13 currently struggles with our budget to provide an affordable means for youth and youth organizations to: outreach; to build meaningful connections with parents and the community; to be empowered; and participate through their OWN voices; and to share their own stories. However, we can not do it alone, we rely on our community partners and our cable franchise funding to continue the work we have been doing since 1986. We applaud the initiative.
ALso this week WCCA TV’s BandEdge, Worcester’s number one live music TV show, shoots Rock Tail Renditions for some 60 style rock fun.
Thanks to our WCCA Interns for ALL they do to cover local events and to help many organizations outreach and to be a success at their respective missions.
