OHS Students’ Writing Featured on Mississippi Public Broadcasting

Oxford High School students reading their personal literary works can be heard across Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB) airwaves now and into next year during the radio show Rural Voices Radio.
RVR2014_PeytonFarmer_credAMovitzSixty OHS students were selected for the honor with 42 students recording their writing—their personal stories or poems about home, a special place to them or about Mississippi—for the two-minute radio show. High school students traveled to Starkville, Mississippi, this fall to record what they wrote for the Rural Voices Radio show, which airs locally each weekday at 3:30 p.m. in Oxford on 90.3 FM.
OHS students who recorded for the Rural Voices Radio program are: Walker Abel, Cole Atkins, Drew Baker, Owen Barnard, Daquan Benson, Terrace Brown, Charlotte Bullard, Sadler Bullard, Curtis Cook, Frances Crawford, Quisha Davis, Constance Dayan, Gavin Douglas, Lee Easson, Quinn Elliott, Tamia Everett, Peyton Farmer, SaMoya Freeman, Lakyn Gibson, Desirae Gladney, Matthew Guyton, Randon Hill, Emmanuelle Jeudy, Joonhee Jo, Angela King, Rachel Kroeger, Collin Le, Riley Lynch, Percious McGee, Ashton Miller, Jasmine Minor, Reyna Mundo, Caroline Powell, Chasity Ray, Patricia Rogers, Sally Rychlak, Libby Sleeper, Isaac Smith, Harland Stewart, Natori Terrell, Mimmo Toma, and Sophie Torma.
“Students were selected from senior English and AP English classes at Oxford High School,” said OHS AP English teacher Allison Movitz, who oversees the project. She also recorded her writing for radio and has been affiliated with the Writing Project for several years. “We are extremely proud of our students who participated in this project and are able to share their personal literary works with MPB listeners.”
Mississippi State Writing/Thinking Institute Project produces Rural Voices Radio, which is headed by Dr. Sherry Swain.
“Dr. Swain selected several students’ Rural Voices Radio writings to be included in an
article she is working on for publication in the English Journal, the publication by the National Council of
Teachers of English,” Movitz said.
