MHS Students & SEM Seniors Forming Frienships

Posted on: March 4, 2016

On Friday, February 26, Milford High School photojournalism students volunteered at the first-ever SEM Villa Winter Carnival. They spent time running activities for the residents and learning more about the organization, as well as, engaging with the other residents. Students were able to spend more time with their partners from their Tuesday class.

This photo is of student Kelly Jackson with her partner Joyce. They decided to get matching face paint will the letters "BFF". This touching photo perfectly displays the relationship that our students are building with these Seniors!

Our photojournalism students, under the direction of teacher Janelle Schunk, have partnered with 14 residents at SEM Villa and will meet weekly with their partners through April. The goal of the partnership is to provide high school photojournalism students with a meaningful real-world application of the skills they are developing in the classroom, while also providing needed connection and social interaction for senior residents in our community.
