They graduated from Concord High School in 2007, they twirl batons with the Purdue University marching band and now twins Chellie and Sara Zou will be promoting C-SPAN in a promo spot that’ll run on the cable TV station starting Aug. 11.
The two young Elkhart women, who will be returning to Purdue for their senior years, are finishing up summer internships with C-SPAN in Washington D.C. and they were called on to tape the spot for the station, which broadcasts federal government proceedings. It’ll run for only a week, but it’ll appear wherever C-SPAN is broadcast around the globe.
Here’s what Sara said: “I think it’s exciting and it’ll set in when I go home and hear from people that they saw it.”
And now Chellie: “We weren’t expecting to have that part of our internship, but it was a lot of fun to do.”
Sara, on the left in the video below, majors in political science and interned in the C-SPAN programming operations/promotions department. Chellie majors in communications and interned in C-SPAN’s digital services department.
The twins were featured in a 2008 Elkhart Truth article after being names twirlers in the Purdue band. Here’s the C-SPAN promo, from YouTube:
