When MSG Varsity — an ambitious new cable show highlighting outstanding high school students — approached Staples principal John Dodig for suggestions, he was ready. “If you’re looking for nuggets,” he said, “you’ve walked into a gold mine.”
The first show profiled Staples’ 2nd-place-in-the-world robotics team. It provided an in-depth look at the innovative teens, complete with action shots of the robot.
Tonight at 6 p.m. (Cablevision Channel 14), MSG Varsity features senior Jahari Dodd. Using interviews with Dodig, Staples Players director David Roth and Jahari himself, the show spotlights his many activities: ABC House Scholar, actor, dancer, activist and role model.
There are 8 million — well, 1,700 — stories at Staples High School. Be sure not to miss this special one.
