MSNBC Week at Fairfield!

Submitted by Meredith Guinness, Assistant Director, Media Relations on September 10, 2011

It’s MSNBC week here at Fairfield!

Two alumnae – Sarah-Jane Henry, M.A. ’11 and Kristen Record ’99 – were both invited to take part in the second annual Teacher Town Hall, broadcast live at noon on Sunday, Sept. 25th, on MSNBC.

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams will moderate the discussion on the most important challenges and opportunities facing America’s teachers, and feature examples of great teaching from various schools and classrooms across the country.

Henry, who holds an M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction, is an art teacher from Barnum School in Bridgeport. Record, a physics major who teaches at the high school level in Stratford, recently received a Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching from President Barack Obama.

Earlier this week, Chuck Todd, chief White House correspondent and political director for NBC News, kicked off the 2011-12 season of Open VISIONS Forum at the Quick Center for the Arts. He mentioned the University the very next day on his MSNBC morning show The Daily Rundown, even giving a shout out to the Stags, who he hopes make it to the NCAA tournament this year.
