Maxine Crump

My inspiration for becoming a reporter – I was in the 3rd grade in my hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana when then WAFB TV reporter Maxine Crump came to my class at South Boulevard Elementary School. She talked to the room full of students about being a reporter. Crump also explained the excitement associated with the job and that’s all it took and I’ve been hooked on the business since.  Thanks Maxine and Mrs. Betty Smith my teacher who brought her in to reach at least one student in the class!
