North Seattle Community College media students
have created a new program for SCCtv's on-line radio station, Rainier Radio.
Six students in North Seattle Community College's Fall quarter Radio and
Audio class were set to task, creating new and engaging programing for Rainier
They turned the vague concept of social media storytelling
into a concrete result.┬á┬á Entitling their streaming media project
"Voices and Voyages," the participants worked on campus with media
managers, faculty members, and current students in arranging, gathering,
selecting, recording, post-producing, and evaluating their student peers' oral
narratives.┬á The stories are about coming to, working through and moving
on from North Seattle CC and other community colleges. ┬áEach of the eight
individual stories and one family story (about three cousins from Tibet and the
traditional song they sang for the Dalai Lama when he was here in Seattle last
year) will soon be posted on a soon to be redesigned Rainier Radio Web site.
These nine carefully crafted narratives eloquently illustrate the power of
human storytelling, the profound importance of community colleges, and the
cooperation and intelligence of the six students who completed this engaging
aural project: ┬áJaeson Albritton, Baldwin Browne, Gloria Gronka, Bhuti
Passang, Pat Poplin, and Sandra Swartz.┬á These stories are posted below
and will soon be available on the updated Rainier Radio site.
