About the Remarkable Times TV Show

Peoria Public Schools District 150 is partnering with CAPtions, Peoria's longest running TV talk show, to begin a new segment, "Remarkable Times."


Hosted by Superintendent Dr. Grenita Lathan, "Remarkable Times' will

highlight various activities in the District and promotes the positive learning occurring everyday.


The debut segment aired as part of CAPtions on Sunday, January 23rd

at 5 pm, and again Wednesday, January 26th at 7 pm, and later at Midnight,

on Comcast Cable 22.


During the first segment, Dr. Lathan interviews the principals of the three high schools, Dr. Sharon Kherat, Randy Simmons, and Steve Ptacek. This 30 minute segment

also includes video clips of classrooms.


"Remarkable Times" is scheduled to be a feature every other month on CAPtions.

The rest of the CAPtions show will feature an interview with Engin Blackstone, principal of the Quest Charter Academy. Host of that segment is Andre Bohannon.


CAPtions is produced by the Peoria Citizens Committee for Economic Opportunity, Inc. Media Services Department. It is funded in part by a grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.
