Find out about preserving the stories and culture of a region through the Kentucky Folklife Center. The facility formerly housed at the state capitol has made its new home on the campus of WKU. Meet Folklife Center Director, Brent Bjorkman, as we share his vision for the future of the program. In the second half of the program learn more about the national PBS initiative- American Graduate- as we share local stories of success aimed at keeping students in school. Bowling Green Schools Superintendent Joe Tinius discusses the need for more mentors to participate in the "why Try" program, while Darlene Taylor rounds out the program with details of the WKU Educational Talent Search 2 program which stresses persistence to keep kids in the classroom.
