Several of Manor High School's media students were among the participants in ATX Together: Lessons from Vietnam.
Last spring, KLRU invited Manor HS students to attend the preview screening of The Vietnam War, a documentary produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. The event inspired students to continue dialogue about the Vietnam War. Krystal McGill, Juan Rodriguez and John Hoover participated in the town hall discussion along with baby boomers and veterans.
"It was an awesome opportunity for students to explore the past while reflecting on their own experiences with a deeper understanding of how the war impacted the world," said MHS Audio/Video Production Teacher Rakeda Ervin.
The program was hosted by Judy Maggio. It airs on KLRU-TV, PBS Austin, 3 times in September.

Congratulations to our MHS Media students from all of us at Manor ISD!
