Newsmakers 2017

Newsmakers  began the New Year by featuring a brand new organization in our area, “Brighter Journeys”.  The organization is designed to meet the needs of parents who have children with special needs. It was formed by a group of families who hope to provide children with a Brighter Journey in life.

The monthly Public Affairs program was hosted by Jayne Ann Bugda and Andy Mehalshick. They were joined by Lisa Urbanski and Bernice Sando, Founders of Brighter Journeys and Jeannine Morrissey,  board member. They explained how their own experiences with their children lead them to spearhead this unique group for families in our area. Newsmakers aired on Sunday, January 8 at 6:30 am on WYOU  and 11:30 am on WBRE. Click here to watch the Newsmakers interview
