TOPS changes, Ukrainian news conference, Sunrise cooking

Happy Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*Students may have a more difficult time earning TOPS because of a possible raise in standards.  We'll tell you how high the ACT score could have to be, along with a raised GPA.

*Today we could see the Ukrainian president for the first time since he fled the country.  He is expected to hold a news conference in Russia and there is concern that Russia's military may be poised to take over part of the country.

*We are continuing to investigate what was behind the loud boom felt in Sulphur and other parts of the Lake area.  We will share the newest information we have this morning.

*The deadline to apply for the state school voucher program is today.  Find out what you need to do if your student attends a school graded a C, D or F.

*The SOWELA culinary crew is joining us in our 6:00 half hour to cook up some ahi tuna with a balsamic reduction.  Yum!  It's a healthy recipe just in time for Lent.

Make it a Sunrise day!
