Wayne County High Student’s Essay in Praise of Farming Life Featured Nationally

Thursday, January 10th, 2013 by Jeff Gray, KET


Wayne County High School senior Travis Lewis wrote a moving essay, “I Believe in the Farmer,” for Angela Sloan’s college-level English 101 class. Travis’ essay and news of its inclusion in The Progressive Farmer, a national agricultural magazine, are featured in an article listed on the Wayne County High School website.

Tim Withers’ video class also recorded Travis reciting his essay and shared the video online at the KET School Video Project website. We wanted to celebrate it again for viewing here. Congratulations to Travis on his encouraging essay, to his parents who forwarded the essay to The Progressive Farmer, and to Wayne County High teachers, Ms. Sloan and Mr. Withers, for arranging such a meaningful English/Video Production class project and sharing it online.

Tim Withers will be returning to KET this July 9 and 10 to present at the next KET Multimedia Professional Development Days event on how he and his students are using their new Edirol VR-5 portable a/v production switcher. He’ll be joined by Michelle Rauch, multimedia teacher at Eastside Technical School, Fayette County, who will present on her students’ use of another useful and exciting portable a/v production switcher, the NewTek Tricaster. We hope many Kentucky teachers and staff will again join us for the event. Details and registration information will be available at the project website later this spring.
