President's speech hit home with older students on the South Plains

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - While some students watched the President's speech, school districts across the South Plains carried on with scheduled lesson plans.

Instead of watching the speech, administrators opted to record it, review it and see how it, if at all, fit into the curriculum.

School districts across the Hub City decided not to air the president's speech live. Instead, administrators opted out to record it, review it and see how it fit into lesson plans.

The speech was geared toward kindergarten thru 12th grade students, but there was one classroom full of older students that watched the speech live.

His message of succeeding in school hit home with one classroom at South Plains College.

"You know your parents repeat everything and don't always listen to what your parents have to say unless someone else says it so it just gave me that extra boost," says Stephanie Smith, a first year student at SPC.

On NewsChannel 11 at 6, see how these college students say the President missed his target audience with Tuesday's speech.
