We are the students and staff of Oldham County High School, a public high school located in LaGrange, Kentucky with around 1,600 students. Within our school, we don't always know the people that we see and pass every single day. Outside of our school, people compare us to the students of nearby high schools. If you do a Google Search of our school, you'll see stories that sometimes paint a negative picture of our school and its community. We don't feel that these stories show who we are and we don't want these stories to define us. *Our school has so many beautiful stories to share and we want to participate in the Inside Out project to share the hidden stories of Oldham County High School.*
Teachers, staff members and the students in Humanities and French classes this year created videos in the style of Humans of New York videos. In the videos, they had the chance to share something about themselves that others might not know. We shared these videos with the school to spread the hidden stories. Then, we formed a committee of teachers and students to select stories that spoke to them. We photographed the chosen students, teachers and staff members and these are the photographs that we are submitting with our Inside Out proposal.
