Veteran broadcaster, radio personality and musician Joe Rock from WBAB radio and Joe Rock and The All Stars visited Mepham High School today to visit with students in Ms. Cooney's and Mr. Stein's Broadcasting classes, Mr. Grosskreuz's Public Speaking class, and Senior Experience with Mr. Achtziger, Ms. Bender and Ms. Wagner.
Joe Rock spoke extensively about his career in radio broadcasting and in television, but also spoke frankly with students about the important soft skills needed for success in any career, such as having an awareness of audience and purpose, the importance of speaking correctly, and appropriate social media use.
He also stressed the importance of respect, noting that anything students post on social media is subject to review by potential employers.
"You're in the public eye every day. Do the best 'you' that you can," he said.
