Roswell visit kicks off 11Alive morning show tour

ROSWELL, Ga. -- The rain did little to dampen spirits in Roswell Wednesday morning as residents came out in droves for a live broadcast of the 11Alive News Today morning show.

People from all walks of Roswell life -- from the first graders at Roswell North Elementary School to Mayor Jere Wood himself -- stopped by the beautiful Historic Roswell Square Park to meet the 11Alive morning team and tell us what makes their city great.

The Roswell High School cheerleaders performed a special 11Alive-themed cheer, while restauranteur Sean McDonough stopped by to provide a taste of the signature menu item at his Roswell Tap restaurant: grits chips, which recently earned Jeff Foxworthy's seal of approval.

Jay Walter, a first grade teacher at Roswell North Elementary, had his hair cut into a Mohawk on live TV. The Mohawk fulfilled a promise to his students: if they logged 200 hours of math study, he would adopt the hairstyle. Douglas Bullman, co-founder and creative director of Salon De La Vie, did the honors.

The morning show tour will continue this Friday, May 11 with a visit to Stone Mountain Village. Next Friday, May 18, the show will hit the road again and travel to Covington.
