Spring, Ames Happenings, Empowered Students

Hosted by: Ursula Ruedenberg and Gale Seiler

Steve Lekwa, the retired Director of the Story County Conservation Board Board, called in from Nevada to tell us where to see Spring ephemeral flowers that are now in bloom. Allyson Walter from the Ames Convention and Visitors Bureau gave us her monthly update of the many events happening to celebrate spring in the Ames area. For the second half of the show, we were joined by Sipele Pablo, the Ames School District Homeless Liaison, and Lucero Martinez, an 8th grade student at Ames Middle School. They spoke about the Connect program, a collaboration between ISU Admissions and Ames Middle and High Schools, and the involvement of Middle School students in Youth Participatory Action Research in which they investigate social problems that directly impact them at school.
