Booker T. Washington Viacom Special

Starting tonight, seven of Viacom’s cable networks – BET, Centric, Comedy Central, MTV2, MTVU, TeenNick and TV land – will broadcast a 30 minute special showing how Booker T. Washington High School in Memphis was transformed from a poor-performing school where fewer than half the students graduated each year into an educational gem.

Obama gave BTW’s commencement address last month at a ceremony in Memphis.

On Wednesday, June 8, Viacom’s 2011 Get Schooled Special – Behind the Scenes: President Obama’s Race to the Top Commencement Challenge will offer a behind the scenes look at choosing BTW as this year’s commencement challenge winner. It airs at 7:30 on BET and Centric.

Viewers can go to www.GetSchooled.com to learn more about the Booker T. Washington story.
