1712/LMHS Senior Ana Franco, who recently was awarded a FIRST Robotics Drexel University Scholarship worth $40K, had her Colombia-to the US-to Lower Merion-to Robotics story picked up by CNN en Español. Today, Ana and her mother traveled to their Washington, DC studios to film a piece for CNN en Español’s new program called “Directo USA.” She will be on a segment called “Latino in America,” which highlights the Hispanic experience in the United States.
Attached are images from Ana’s day at CNN. There will be a follow up shoot at LMHS. According to Ana’s mother via text message, this was an awesome experience for her and things went very well. CNN will be following up on a date for the LM shoot and an air date. We will keep the community posted here.
