Using field working techniques as an approach to primary research, service-learning students from Stephanie West-Puckettís English 1200 class partnered with the K-12 students and families of Building Hope Community Life Center, a non-profit organization that serves at-risk youth in Greenville, during the month of April to record, transcribe, and publish a collection of oral histories in words, sounds, images, drawings, and video. The results of this project are published in Volume I of Tar River Tales and will also be featured soon on the Building Hope website at http://www.bhclc.org. The project's mission is to promote multi-cultural exchange and appreciation through the collection, celebration and publication of ordinary and not-so-ordinary family and community stories. The Building Hope participants, university partners, and Building Hope staff considered the project a huge success and are thankful to the Rose High School Printing and Graphics Department for designing and printing the anthologies as well the many local restaurants who donated a dinner meal each week to make these workshops sessions possible.
