TE Morning News - 2/2/18 
  • Joke of the Week - Hello TE, Its that time again!!! Why do Bad Geography kids drown? There below C-Level!!!!!!!
  • Good morning. I am Lindsey Alemany. And I am Alex Suchecka. And we are students from the Sage Team. As you know it is Black History Month, so we decided to choose Oprah Winfrey as our honorary pick.  We selected Oprah Winfrey because she is an amazing woman and she inspires people all around the world.

Oprah Winfrey is an American media owner, talk show host, actress, producer, and contributor. She was born in Mississippi on January 29th, 1954. 

Winfrey said her father saved her life. He was very strict and provided her with guidance, structure, rules, and books. He required his daughter to complete weekly book reports, and she went without dinner until she learned five new vocabulary words each day.

Winfrey became an excellent student, participating as well in the drama club, debate club, and student council. In an Elks Club speaking contest, she won a full scholarship to Tennessee State University. The following year she was invited to a White House Conference on Youth. 

Oprah also became the world's first female black billionaire and the richest self-made American woman. Did you know that Oprah had a net worth over $2 billion in 2013! She was crowned Miss Black Tennessee while in college and began co-anchoring the evening news when she was nineteen. Oprah has always struggled with her weight, so in 2015 she made $300 million on her Weight Watchers investment. Oprah launched “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in 1986 as a nationally controlled program. The show grossed $125 million in the first year. In 2009, she announced that she would be ending her program when her contract with ABC ended, in 2011.  In January of 2018, she became the first African-American woman to be honored with the Golden Globes' Cecil B. DeMille award. Oprah states “So I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon”,. Oprah Winfrey is such an inspiring, kind-hearted woman and we would love to recognize her today
