Elon students record
war veterans' stories


Students in Harlen Makemson's Web Publishing and Design courses have created a multimedia website focusing on Alamance County war veterans. The project was conducted in conjunction with the Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress, which aims to record the oral histories of veterans from around the country.

Students in Makemson's classes taped interviews with Alamance County veterans under Library of Congress guidelines. Students then did further research, wrote stories and headlines, edited video, collected photographs and memorabilia, designed charts and graphics, and produced a website using Macromedia Dreamweaver and Flash, Adobe Photoshop and Final Cut Pro.

Students in the Web Publishing classes included: Andrew Baker, Kim Bowman, Adam Colton, Lauren Gray, Victoria Hall, Kensie Hamilton, KeiSaundra Henderson, Rachel Hinson, Katie Hundt, Taylor Loftus, Rachel McNally, Heather Minchello, Katie Palermo, Lindsey Rushmore, Bill Taylor, Greg Thackray, Butner Brimberry, Jeanne Davis, Virginia Galvez, Matt Gannon, Raphael Garcia, Christy James, Brad Leddon, Kirsten MacMonegle, Parker McCarter, Danae McDuffee, Sarah Moser, Jessica Patchett, Lauren Ritterman, Andrea Sjogren and Adam Smith.

Makemson's Editing and Design class also participated in the project, editing stories and writing headlines. Those students were: Candace Buckman, Michelle Cooley, Colin Donohue, Brittany Dunlap, Dan Hawkins, Grant Knier, Jocelyn Maningo, Carrie Morgan, Amy Parker, Lindsay Porter, Kellen Sibley, Jason Smith, Laura Somerville, Cassandra Srozinski, Elizabeth Tencer and Cheryl Williams.
