Hawk Eye News holds banquet
Red Oak’s ISD Hawk Eye News held its sixth annual banquet June 28 at the Red Oak High School. This award-winning news program is a partner with the ROISD Police Department and its Project Success / HADDIT Drug Free program along with Allen Oliver Productions.
For those who don’t know what it takes to put together a news cast, these extremely talented students put in numerous hours for their monthly news cast and made it so very easy. However, instead of reporting on school and community events, this night was for them.
The evening started with ROISD Police Chief Scott Lindsey welcoming everyone to the banquet and recognizing distinguished guests and sponsors, including ROISD board President John Hawkins and ROISD Superintendent Scott Niven.
Hawk Eye News Sports anchor, Zack Toombs, led the Invocation and afterwards, Allen Oliver recognized two contributors to Hawk Eye News during the 2007-2008 school year; Steve Patterson with Moving Pictures and Scott Krywalski with Red Oak Photos who provided sports, school and community photos throughout the year.
Students, parents and guests were then treated to an awesome catered barbeque dinner with all the fixings. A "Year in review" video was played while everyone ate. After dinner individual awards were handed out by Allen and Kimberly Oliver.
2007-2008 Hawk Eye News program had a very successful year as indicated by the thousands of Web site hits during the year.
