Last year Beaumont Independent School District students and staff raised $13,000 for New Jersey's Irvington Public School District, which was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.
A camera crew was at West Brook High School Thursday shooting a piece for Latifah's upcoming new daytime talk show, The Queen Latifah Show.
The piece will highlight the activities and fundraisers students put on at various BISD schools.
"A group of kids did a really great thing for people on the other side of the country, who they didn't know, and we really liked the idea of that," said Adrian Buitenhuis, a producer for the show.
BISD spokesman Ron Reynolds says the district never expected any kind of special recognition for the fundraiser, but was very excited when they got the call from The Queen Latifah Show back in June.
Producers say the piece on BISD is set to air sometime in October.
