NLG-ACumnock Romo Interview

Media students interview celebrities on the red carpet at Nancy Lieberman’s annual gala.

Frisco ISD-TV’s Abbey Cumnock, Bailey Stone and Chalen Broom were in the mix at the 2015 Nancy Lieberman Foundation Dream Ball Gala April 16, 2015 at the Omni Dallas Hotel.  These Career and Technical Education (CTE) Center Audio/Video Production students seized the opportunity to cover the Denim & Diamonds affair, which is a result of a long-standing relationship between NBA Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman and Frisco ISD-TV.

“Nancy has such a big heart and cares so much for students having chances to do big things in life,” Frisco ISD-TV Executive Producer Eva Coleman said. 

Students battled rush-hour traffic out of Frisco to get to the event in downtown Dallas, recognizing the magnitude of the opportunity.

“I was going to make sure we got there, even if it was for the last 10 minutes!” Producer/Editor Bailey Stone said.

They made it in time to snag interviews with sports notables Tony Romo, Deion Sanders and Rick Carlisle.

“We’ve been with Nancy along the Dream Ball Gala journey since it started in 2012 and I’m grateful for this memory of a lifetime that she provides my students,” Coleman said.
