By Jon D. Gaede, BVN Sports –
The students of Rialto High School were treated to a special day with the well known entertainer and television host, Nick Cannon.
The unique appearance was provided by the United States Army and radio station 99.1 FM. The station sponsored a contest to promote student participation on it’s website. Rialto students were the clear winners.
Rialto Superintendent, Dr. Harold L. Cebrun Jr. was so pleased that the radio station had provided such a wonderful opportunity for the students.
Cannon, known for his role in the classic film “Drumline”, rap music and TV hosting was a big hit with the students on Monday.
Cannon’s natural high energy connects well with the student body as he encouraged young people to reach for their dreams.
Rialto High School is a high spirited campus. The majority of students seem to be involved in a program or activity offered by the school. Sports, Naval ROTC and a variety of student organizations were represented at the pep rally.
The honored guest was treated to outstanding performances by the Rialto High School Marching Band, the pep squad and the drama department.
Cannon, a multi talent has not only survived in a tough industry, he has developed himself into host for NBC. Cannon is a young man who appears to be in control of his destiny, a theme he encourages others to follow.
In a special moment, the outstanding varsity girls basketball team was introduced and provided personal time with Nick. The ‘Lady Knights‘ (34-4) are the most successful basketball team in the school’s history.
The girls won the Southern Section CIF Championship on March 5th in Anaheim. On March 19, at USC’s Galen Center, the Lady Knights, on a last second shot by Janae Sharpe, won their State Regional and played in the State Championship in Sacramento.
Cannon currently hosts NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent’ as he and his wife Mariah Carey are expecting their first child.
