HCEC-TV Releases Winter JTA Student-Athlete Features on Youtube

HCEC-TV Winter Interviewees

VINE GROVE, KY- In a new continuing tradition, partnering with Hardin County Educational and Community Television (HCEC-TV), winter J. T. Alton 8th Grade athletes were able to once again tell the stories of their seasons, and years in Middle School.

These interviews are now posted to Youtube on the HCEC-TV Channel for public viewing and will be used as halftime and pregame fillers for the channel’s coverage of local sporting events. 

When approached by Rowland, HCEC-TV Coordinator/Producer, Gina Ryan, said that she loves doing athlete features for all the schools, but it takes school support to make it happen. “I would love for every HCS middle and high school to take advantage of this service we offer, but it takes support from each school to make it happen,” said Ryan. 

“We are glad that we are able to get these athletes some more recognition on the middle school level. These are all talented kids that are destined for high school athletic careers, if not beyond,” said JTA Athletic Director Richard Rowland, “We want to provide these kids with experiences that are meaningful and we’re glad that Gina (Ryan) and HCEC-TV are helping us do this.”
