WSTR production staff begins Power of One Initiative, asking students,“What makes you special?”
The WSTR video production team has recently started a project at WHS called The Power of One.
The Power of One is a project where several members of the video announcement crew, specifically Natalie Gardner (12), Daniel Carpenter (12) and Kole Emplit (11), will be going to each of the lunches and asking students to write down one thing that makes them special.
“These will then be hung around the school so everyone can see what makes each person in WHS special and also let everyone in the building know they belong and has something inside of them that makes them unique,” Nathan Greene, Computer Science teacher and WSTR adviser, said.
This project was inspired by Administrative Intern Heidi Haas, because she started this project on a smaller scale in her office, having each student, who comes to see her, write something that they feel makes them special before they leave her office.
Greene and the WSTR video production team said they wanted to make it a full school project with the hope that students can begin to recognize how diverse we, as a school and as a student body, are and to help show everyone in the school building how much each of us has to offer.
“The hope is that students will be able to see these characteristics in each other,” Greene said.
This project began the week of March 12 and will continue once a week during lunches.
