School accolades[edit]

  • Mt Juliet High School emerged with a cable presence that started in 2000. The school operates a daily student news, weather, and sports unlike most any other school based student video program including colleges. Some of the student produced reports include international, health, sports, tech, and music news segments. One approach appealing to students is the Word of the Day, where students produced and act out comical skits pertaining to the school-selected Word of the Day. In fact the web reference on this page directs you to the school's station BNN for Bear's News Network.
