In this week’s Enlighten Me, we head to Mount Pleasant High School in the Brandywine School District, home to WMPH and our Generation Voice Youth project.

Students there produce a bevy of interviews and projects on a variety of topics, and we like to highlight some of that work throughout the year here on The Green.
