South High students Olivia Faison, Jenna, Jenni Velez, Jordan Taylor, and Tayler Hill created “Creating Our Own Education: It’s Our Responsibility,” a video about the responsibility students have to make their education happen. They produced the piece with help from the Minneapolis Television Network (MTN) through the Voices program.
MTN has been a partner with Minneapolis South High since 1989 in the Voices program. Voices is a social studies class at South, but a vital part of that class is the partnership with MTN. MTN trains students in the Voices class in camera and editing, and the students make documentaries and PSA’s on important social issues.
VOICES stands for Values, Options, Issues and ChoicEs in Society.
