NBC's 'Education Nation', an upcoming week-long look at education in
Tryon Hills Pre-K Center was the setting for NBC's look into the
importance of early education. The crew spent two days observing two
Pre-K classes, then talked to students and teachers about the ways
having a Pre-K foundation can support a child's education.
This past week, an NBC crew got a first-hand look into the life of
Sterling fourth-grader Jevón Dixon. While at Sterling, NBC interviewed
some of the outstanding teachers who are making a difference in the

education reform with Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.
Jevón and the Sterling community will be featured Sunday, Sept. 26 on
the Today Show from 8-9 a.m., during NBC's Town Hall meeting on MSNBC
cable channel 50 at noon, and on NBC Nightly News at 6:30 p.m. Tryon
Hills' students and teachers make their debut later in the week. At
