Amanda stopped by Williston Middle school to talk to the young girls there about making good choices and bullying. Many say they were excited to learn about her journey to become a news anchor and also get tips on how to combat bullying in schools.
So excited to meet members of our local law enforcement teams at WWAY news studios. Our station provided free pizza courtesy of Papa Johns who partnered with us for the amazing appreciation event.
Great event at the Wilmington convention center, where Miss American and Judge Anita Earls were the guest speakers.
WWAY has a great staff of women who work on-air and behind the scenes each and every night to bring our viewers the latest news.
In honor of Black History month I scheduled interviews with various people to discuss their achievements, in across the Wilmington area. To see more stories from her series, go to https://www.wwaytv3.com/news-tags/black_history_month/
Each year WWAY and New Hanover Regional Medical Center host an annual WWAY Health Fair! The event took place on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at Independence Mall in Wilmington, North Carolina. Amanda got a chance to meet with viewers and even participate in local health testing and speak to the community about learning how to feel better and live longer.
