Auston is currently enrolled at Broward College and will enroll as a sophomore at Florida State University in the Fall of 2018.
“I am so excited to be offered such an amazing opportunity,” said Borens. ” I know this internship will help me tremendously as I continue to plan for my future. I will forever be thankful to Mr. Freeman, my high school TV production teacher and the YSN Sports Broadcasting Academy for believing in me.”
The YSN Sports Broadcasting Academy is a weekly live and interactive online training for high school students interested in sports broadcasting careers. Sports broadcasting professionals from all over the U.S. serve as the academy faculty and guest speakers. Students also receive extensive professional development.
