For Rosie Lowndes, a middle school director for Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA), being on the radio has always been a personal goal and dream.  When Lowndes was invited to be a guest DJ on 103.3 FM, an urban contemporary radio station in Atlanta, she was more than thrilled.

On March 29, Lowndes brought three GCA middle school students who are members of the Middle School Assembly Club to appear with her on The Greg Street Show. The GCA guests announced the winners of a school-wide contest for the highest Interim Four Assessment average in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.  Ms. Lowndes agreed to give the grade level with the highest average a “shout out” as the winner.
