Real-world publishing by our students gets noticed via youtube

Sophomore Connor Peterson received the following message on his youtube account:

"I would like to show your film to a group of middle school students as a part of our AIDS/HIV lessons. I like that it is a student made production and feel it is age appropriate and speaks to the fear and facts of the syndrome/disease.

Can you send me a copy in a format I can show at school? I promise to use it only for good and will not distribute nor sell it.

I have been looking and looking for the right film for my kids.

Thank you if you can, I know things get complicated, if you can't.

This is what it is all about.  Connor's movie was for his English research project and pulls together the facts along with the emotions in a way that a traditional research report could not do.  Congratulations Connor, on a job well done- both for your English class and the classes around the world that are benefiting from your sharing.
