Family Tradition

His mother Maranda Lewis was on the team when she was a student at West Point Elementary School around twenty years ago. Mrs. Lewis was able to join Micheal recently as a special guest anchor. Mrs. Lewis was a natural, slipping into the role like she did it yesterday, but she did note, however, that the technology has definitely improved since her broadcast days!
