From The Newsroom: Michael Hinojosa's Wait Is Over; High School Hoop Dreams

Dallas ISD

The top local stories this morning from the KERA Newsroom: The state-mandated 21-day waiting period for incoming Dallas Superintendent Michael Hinojosa has ended. The Dallas school board is expected to vote on Hinojosa’s contract later this evening.

Also, we’ll check in with a member of the Class of ’17 who has a tall dream: to get on his school’s varsity basketball team.

Finally, Caitlyn Jenner’s very public transition from male to female put a specific surgery in the spotlight, known as facial feminization. KERA’s Lauren Silverman explains that the procedure, at times, can be just as much art as it is science. 

You can listen to North Texas stories weekdays at 8:20 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM. 

Former KERA staffer Krystina Martinez was an assistant producer. She produced local content for Morning Edition and She also produced The Friday Conversation, a weekly series of conversations with North Texas newsmakers. Krystina was also the backup newscaster for the Texas Standard.
