New grant will fund podcasting studio at JHS

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Jonesboro High School teacher found out on Friday that they will get a new podcasting studio.

The Foundation of Jonesboro Public Schools Prize Patrol delivered the grants to several teachers in the Jonesboro School District.

Mr. Russell Stokes plans to use it for a new podcasting program.

“I've been trying to find ways students can produce real stories, the way they understand stories through podcast, both video and audio and I think this is going to allow us to do that,” Stokes said.

These grants are funded through donations and brick sales you can purchase and have placed outside the new theatre.
