Coronado Schools Foundations funds STEAM-inspired classes like KCMS Broadcasting at Coronado Middle School where then student Mary Grace Braun found her passion for journalism. Mary Grace shares her journey and how she is giving back:
I’m a recent college graduate of the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Back at Coronado Middle School, I took the broadcast production class KCMS which planted the seed for my love of journalism. At Coronado High, I knew I wanted to pursue broadcasting and received an academic scholarship to attend GW and study journalism in the most newsworthy city in America. At GW, I interned at five major news outlets, and was the anchor for our college news show. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in May, and am now back in San Diego working for KUSI News as a field producer for KUSI’s high school football show, the PPR. What could be better!? I am grateful to Coronado Schools Foundation donors for supporting STEAM pathway programs like KCMS. I have also been inspired to give back through volunteering in Amy Steward’s KCMS class this year as Mrs. Steward has been a wonderful mentor and life coach. Thanks to KCMS, I learned the importance of telling powerful and inspiring stories, and found my life’s passion. Please give generously to our local public schools invest in YOUR child or your neighbor’s child dreams.
