WEST ORANGE, NJ – Media darling and Edison Middle School Honors student Marley Dias will be featured on a segment of the “Today” show on NBC-TV this week. The segment is scheduled to show during the May 31 or June 1 program.
A crew from the “Today” show filmed Dias and her classmates on May 18 during her Honors English class, taught by teacher Sheniece Jackson. As the class discussed Egyptian mythology, specifically the story of the deity “Set,” cameras filmed the students and discussion from various angles. The film crew was impressed with the poise and intelligence of the EMS students.
"These kids are so smart!," exclaimed "Today" show producer Robin Sindler.
The segment on Dias will be an update on her literacy and social activism efforts. Dias hopes to get involved with literacy programs supporting summer reading in the near future.
