In Mathis, Texas, students made a video about the closeness of a small town where families come together to support neighbors in need. They were assisted by Appalshop, a media arts and education organization based in Whitesburg, Kentucky.
This video was created by students at the Mathis High School for International Studies in Mathis,Texas to share with students in Jogjakarta, Indonesia and in Asia Society's International Studies Schools Network in Charlotte, North Carolina. After you watch the video, read what the students thought and post your own comments!
