Sister Mary June Continues to Conquer the Airwaves

This week, Sister Mary June Morin of St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children makes an appearance on the city of Norfolk’s “Norfolk Perspectives” program on cable TV-48, Norfolk’s Neighborhood Network. Host Bob Batcher interviewed her about what it has been like to spend a lifetime caring for children. Sister is celebrating her 50th year of working at SMHDC. You can watch the “City Slice” segment with Sister Mary June here.


That’s Bob Batcher with Sister in the photo at far left; the other photo is of Sister and the program’s producer, Michelle Gabriele Harrell, on the set last week.


This is Sister’s second recent appearance on local television. Just last month, she was featured on the community affairs program “What Matters” on Hampton Roads’ public TV station WHRO.
