Channel 7 Eyewitness News Reporter Kristin Thorne visited Silas Wood on Friday, May 8, 2015.  Kristin visited classrooms to talk about the power of journalism and her experiences as a news reporter.  The "Silas Scribes" in Mrs. Brown's English class and students in Mrs. Abbondondolo's class asked thoughtful and meaningful questions.  Kristin even learned how to tap dance when a student taught her in Ms. Cirillo's class. “I loved the way she connected with the students,” said Ms. Cirillo. “Kristin spoke about her interest in reporting since being a child with her passion being reporting on storms. The students also learned about the colleges she attended and her path to becoming a journalist.”

Thank You Kristin Thorne for inspiring our students.
