The kids at Cedar Park School in Selma were recently treated to a visit at WSFA TV 12 in Montgomery, Alabama. The trip was sponsored by the V.I.P. Organization Inc. of Selma and the Black Belt Community Foundation.

They got to see the behind the scenes action of how WSFA produces its newscasts. They saw everything from the weather center to the newsroom and everything in between.

After visiting the TV station they toured through Alabama State University's campus, then it was time for lunch at McDonalds were they were treated to lunch by a friendly staff and was given the opportunity to play on the play ground in the Zelda Road location.

The kids then went on a tour of the Alabama Shakespeare Festival to learn about how plays are produced and how the actors and actresses do what they do behind the curtain. The kids learned about the costumes and how the makeup artists apply the makeup on the actors and actresses.

The event was an educational one and taught the kids about a whole lot of different jobs and how people from all walks of life have to work together for a common goal of getting the job done.
