We are excited to be posting our second podcast presented by the J.K. Lee Community. We’re going to be bringing you closer to individuals who are living examples of our tenets and oath. (If you missed our first episode, you can see it here: 2020 Gala)
Our podcast is being produced, researched and brought to life by students at J.K. Lee City Youth and J.K. Lee Black Belt Academy. In addition to learning about our tenets in action, our students are learning about communication, the media, language, performance, marketing and design! Special thanks to Miss Chloe Lee for all her research and work on this episode. (Parental note: Episodes are aimed at children ages ten and up. This episode touches on youth mental health issues.)
Our guest is Rory Linnane. She is a reporter at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Ideas
Lab, which focuses on solutions-oriented journalism. She has been covering youth mental health and planning events for several years with the "Kids in Crisis" series. As part of the project, she co-produced a documentary with Milwaukee PBS. The film, “You’re Not Alone,” follows four young people navigating mental health challenges and won a regional Emmy award. Linnane has also written for the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, Street Pulse, AOL’s Patch, and Madison Magazine. She studied journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she graduated in 2013.
