Students from STARS Accelerated High School are recording oral history interviews of local armed services veterans who are members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7835.
 
Four veterans, who served in the U.S. Army during Vietnam, are the first to participate in the interviews. Others are expected to join the project.
 
The students are preparing the oral history interviews for the Veterans History Project, a part of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
 
Students also earn a half credit in digital arts toward their high school graduation plan.
 
Funded by the Granbury ISD Education Foundation, the social studies project is an effort to document the veterans’ service history. “These hands-on experiences will teach our students video and editing skills while creating interpersonal relationships and connections with veterans thus strengthening community awareness,” commented teacher Rhonda Naylor.
