Gabe Giffin from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries stopped by 2une In Friday with more information on the event.

WALKER - In 2une In's new series 'Cool Schools', we'll tell you the story of unique schools, teachers and students from across the Baton Rouge area.

Our very first Cool School story is at Walker High School in Livingston Parish, where students broadcast their varsity football games on television. Wildcat TV is entirely produced, directed and filmed by Walker High students and is the only student-run show on television in southeastern Louisiana.

"Once game time starts, every hustles," junior Xander Miller explained. "We are all on the field filming, people are up in the booth making sure everything is running smoothly. We are recording and switching between cameras."

"I'm excited about this program because no one else is doing it and we see the results," boasted Principal Jason St. Pierre. "It's important that students do the work. They are the engine driving the ship."

Principal St. Pierre says he wants his students to be prepared to enter the real world, and the students believe that is what the broadcasting program promotes.

"Whenever I leave high school, I will be able to go out and do these same things in my career and already have experience a lot of people don't get in high school," Miller said.

You can watch Wildcat TV every Friday on COX Channel 117 and on the Walker High School website. Also, click on the video link for a closer look at Walker High's broadcasting class. 

If you think you have a Cool School, contact 2une In's Kylie Dixon at kdixon@wbrz.com. She's looking for unique classes, special programs and teachers or students who go above and beyond. Then 2une In every Tuesday to see what Cool Schools are doing in our area.

The program will extend far beyond Zachary Schools.
