Enlighten Me: Generation Voice features from WMPH

Jan 10, 2020

In this week’s Enlighten Me, we visit to WMPH and Mount Pleasant High School in the Brandywine School District, one of the two schools we’ve partnered with on our to our Generation Voice Youth Media project

Students there - and at our other partner WMHS at McKean High School in the Red Clay School District - produce a bevy of interviews and projects on a variety of topics throughout the year. And from time to time we like to highlight some of that work here on The Green.

This week, we share with you a pair of thoughtful features produced at Mount Pleasant’s WMPH.

Up first is an in-depth piece from junior Jade Reyes, who delved into abductions and kidnappings in an effort to demytify these crimes and the way they are investigated.

 

Next, we have another Mount Pleasant junior, Liam Youtz, who took a look at the so-called “Centerville trash bomber” that had drawn complaints from residents there.

A reminder that these pieces are part of Generation Voice, our collaboration with the Brandywine School District at Mt. Pleasant High school and its radio station WMPH – and the Red Clay School District at McKean High School and its radio station WMHS.  Our youth media producer Sophia Schmidt oversees Generation Voice for us, working on these pieces with teacher Paul Wishengrad who runs the Career Pathway we work with at Mount Pleasant.
