October 6, 2006. WLS-TV reporter Michelle Gallardo took time from her busy schedule to speak to our sophomores and juniors about her journey as a Latina in the broadcast industry. Ms. Gallardo shared how her Hispanic heritage allowed her to become one of only 3 reporters in Chicago to cross over into main stream English language broadcasting. The students appreciated her candor and enjoyed her story. Thank you, Michelle, for helping us celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!
