Troy University Public Radio partners with the Troy City School system and the Pike County schools system to provide opportunities for high school students to serve as announcers for the Radio Reading Service for the blind. Through the Global Studies Program, we have twenty students participating during Fall semester 2007. They participated in an orientation/training session and each had the opportunity to read a small segment of a regional newspaper to get hands on experience with the equipment. Once the group session is completed, they have the opportunity to sign up as a volunteer to read on a weekly basis.
Troy University is an AA/EEO employer and encourages applications from females, African Americans and other minorities.
