Rural Voices Radio this Week
We are happy to say Sumayia Young and John Johnson will be featured this week on Rural Voices Radio (RVR).
Sumayia's piece can be heard on Tuesday, August 25th at 3:28 p.m.
John's piece can be heard on Thursday, August 27th at 3:28 p.m.
RVR is a partnership between the Mississippi Writing/Thinking Institute and Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB). It is broadcast each weekday at 3:28 p.m. Listeners can tune into any of the eight MPB radio stations to hear stories of home, place, and Mississippi by students and teachers across the state.
"Rural Voices Radio is a unique way to share the voices of Mississippi students and teachers," stated Sherry Swain, Director of the Mississippi State University field office of the National Writing Project and coordinator of Rural Voices Radio. "It is a catalyst for building a renewed awareness of the importance of authentic audiences for Mississippi students."
