Troy State Public Radio partnered with the Troy City School system and the Pike County schools system to implement the Radio Reading service as a part of the Global Academy Studies program. October is the month that the class has chosen as their public service month and this is when the students have the opportunity to visit the radio station and get familiar with the operations of the radio station as well as volunteering for the radio reading service for the blind. The program consists of five to ten junior and senior high school students from the area. They come over as a group and have a tour of the radio station and learn about the background of the radio reading services. Then they have the opportunity to read a small segment of the state Newspaper to get hands on experience with the equipment. Once the group session is over they have the opportunity to sign up to come and volunteer to read on a weekly basis. We are fortunate enough to have this group of young people to participate in the radio reading service for the years of 2003 and 2004.
