Walking the Path Oscars!

Dear Friends,

While the official Oscars may be this weekend, we had our own Academy Awards earlier this month with our August Martin High School Walking the Path participants.  Eight students were challenged to write a memoir or personal story that significantly affected their lives and turn it into a short film. They worked with the school’s English Language Arts teacher to write a personal story.  The students used Final Cut Pro to add video and photographs to their memoir voiceover and each student produced a 2-3 minute video.

Earlier this month, those 8 videos were screened for an audience of their families, friends and peers red carpet style.  After the screenings, each student was honored with their very own Oscar trophy. 

It took incredible courage for these students to share such a personal part of themselves with a large group and we applaud them!  It is because of your support that we’re able to offer such a unique and creative outlet for our students to express themselves.

We hope to have additional updates and photos to share with you later in the year from our other Walking the Path students at Dubois and John Jay High School.  Until then, thank you again for your continued support!
