Sha'tera Wilcoxson is a junior at the Dayton Regional STEM School, a gifted student, and an accomplished singer but unfortunately these talents could not protect her from being teased and tormented by her peers. Sha'tera says that she has persevered through that period in her life, and now she has gained self confidence needed to succeed. She has written and produced a public service announcement for the PACER Organization to encourage all of us to help put an end to bullying.
The Dayton Regional STEM school prepares students with the skills necessary to compete in the global economy while nurturing in our young people the same enthusiasm for discovery, invention and application that launched the vision for powered flight. WYSO and Dayton Youth Radio are excited to work with the students at the STEM School. Special thanks to STEM school Media Arts teacher Emerie Whitman-Allen.
Funding for the Dayton Youth Radio Project comes from the Virginia Kettering Foundation, the Ohio Arts Council and The Dayton Foundation.
